A Plethora of Poets

At Half Price Books Humble Poetry Night 11/01/12

Poetry readings are exciting, and often times, unique experiences.  Different poets bring a different vibe to each event.  But even more interesting is when the night is full of young poets, teenaged poets, High School poets.

These kids are bold, honest, and in some cases fearless in the way they expose their vulnerability in the most expressive form of art.  There are the shy, quiet poets sharing grief; the in your face exuberant poetess forcing you to feel every joy and sorrow; and there are simply down right honestly funny poets that are bound to make the next great comedians.

The group last night were students from the Humble High School Poetry Club and their parents and friends. I hope next time we’ll see some representation from other schools as well. Everyone and anyone is invited to join the fun.

All around, it was a great night and I can’t wait for December’s meeting!

HPB Poetry Nights are held the first Thursday of the month, 7 pm – 9 pm. Read your favorite poet or recite some of your own work. Hang out and chat with other students of poetry and maybe learn something new. Snacks are served.
