Poetry Under the Painting Poets

 Theme: Poet’s Choice 

 While the poets from Poetry Under the Painting have not been together as long as River Poets, we have taken pleasure in one another’s words — or in the words of emerging and established poets — for quite a few years now.

We read round robin and wait for a theme to emerge… which it so often does! With every month that passes, and every person who joins us and those who depart, we keep learning to listen more deeply and more appreciatively for everyone’s style and point of view.”
