Today was our Poetry afternoon and I can't tell you just how much I enjoy it - and I think I speak for all dozen or so of us.
It is certainly one of my favourite afternoons of the month. It is lovely meeting like-minded folk, it is a treat to all meet together in friend W's warm conservatory, it is a joy to look out the possible poems to read (in my case TS Eliot, George Mackay Brown, and two poems written by Welsh poets after the death of RS Thomas (my favourite poet).) And finally, of course, comes the joy of sharing the poems with the rest of the group and talking about them. Some of the group are really knowledgeable about poetry and we always learn something we didn't know.
It has been a much better day here today and ended with a beautiful pink sky as the sun went down. It has of course become very cold as it got dark, but after all it is November.
