Café Poets at Pinky's January 15th 2016

An interesting variety of practical poets, in from Felixstowe, Occold, Woodbridge, Wenhaston, Beccles and the places in between. Each reader brings a set of talking pictures, poems made with words drawn from life, from memory, from experience or thin air itself. How does it work ? Imagine: A wild desert track in Africa, a prayer-mat of newsprint, a traveller gets down to worship. Imagine: a mother and daughter sharing in birth and death, or a young recruit donning his new uniform, next, perhaps a clutch of brazen dragon-flies... You might even meet Alfred Lord Tennyson himself, bearing flowers, or hear tell of a harrowing family saga, then a lad and lion winding up at the zoo. The surprises are endless and your evening flies by in a sort of magical whirlwind. We are left with the distant chime of Blyth Valley bells, soft on the marshland breeze of a Sunday morning.

Café Poets plan to meet again at Pinky's Café in Halesworth Market Place, on March 18th 2016, starting at 7pm. Tickets £3.50 at the door. If you have a poem you would like to share, ring Mike on 01986 872981 or Email mab2015@icloud.com. Listeners always welcome.
