MIDNIGHT 2 DAWN
ONCE A YEAR,WE POETS GATHER
under the umbrella of Austin International Poetry Festival
We find a venue that will love us for one night
(in this case wondrous FULL ENGLISH CAFE)
and we begin before midnight with haiku.
All forms of poetry are welcomed after midnight,and music emerges
to back up poems improvised or memorized.
Each willing poet can also contribute to an INSTANT ANTHOLOGY
which collates these efforts into a stapled book by morning's light.
Poets follow both themes and styles-from grief to humor
and emotions are bared like wires.Spark and bright!
Lines emerge like beached sharks.Response is instant.
Each poet stays as long as they wish-some read and run
Others stay to the first light of full moon dawn.
So it was last night@Full English Cafe
So it will be in 2018.We need to gather more
We need to hear each other's he/artbeats..
