Art & Poetry

Our friends invited us to an Art & Poetry party. All invited are expected to recite their favorite piece of poetry. Or they can write their own and "perform" it.

They had something similar about a year ago over their house and it was so successful that they decided to rent a small place. Not so much to invite more people but to provide more room to spread out. Their house is a split-level affair. They placed chairs above that sort of felt like a balcony. Then they wrapped rope lights around the banister and spot lights on a small stage. We had such a good time. There was great poetry too. Here's the very cool invite.

I gave one of my poems:

Our Mother Made Lasagna

In addition to the poetry, many brought their artwork and displayed it in a small room that looked like a gallery. It was one of the most successful parties I've been too.

I'm looking forward to the one this year.
