Poetry Week

What a week of poetry!  It was capped tonight at the former Black Stilt, now Mocha House where there was another open mic, along with two featured speakers; Nora Gould and Emily McGiffin. I enjoyed delivering my piece, American Highway, during the open mic but was yet again humbled at the high quality of the other poets.  What an incredibly talented world it is, here in Victoria poetry is flourishing.  The range of imagery and stories and styles tonight was fabulous.  The featured speakers were absolutely brilliant, a cowgirl from Alberta and a peripatetic poet from BC, who both share a love of biology and ecology, not to mention graphic detail.  For me, feelings of excitement and intimidation mingle, as I absorb the lessons of the evening.
