For the spring equinox

Our friend David Godkin organized a poetry reading last evening to celebrate (belatedly) the spring equinox. The Gumboot Cafe in Roberts Creek was packed with people. Susan Telfer read several new poems as well as a handful from her book, House Beneath, followed by Joe Denham who read from Flux as well as a section of his astonishing long poem, Windstorm. After the break, John read a range of his work from over the years, including “The Veil” from Blossom: An Accompaniment (a favourite of mine).  He concluded with a poem from his forthcoming collection, crawlspace. I thought, listening to all three poets, how much poetry has to tell us about the world, how lucky we are to have the opportunity to hear it.
