Get Your Truth and Freedom Poems Ready - Thursday June 29th

The Mother's Day and "IT" poems were great and we are still hearing
others that were not shared on the assigned nights. The "THEY"
poems will be scheduled perhaps later. We'll see. The feedback on
the "assignments" has been good and the poems have been creative and
very thought provoking.

To give folks time to prepare some really good Truth and Freedom
poems, we'll share them the week before the 4th of July on Thursday
June 29th
. If you have any questions, email me or see me at Beatnix

Keep writing,

If you would like to receive reminders for upcoming events via your email, make sure you sign up for the yahoo hotpoets Newsletter.

Teen Poetry Workshop today at the Waco Public Library

I just came from the teen workshop held today at the Central Library. It was hosted by my fellow poet friend Laura Walton. The workshop was awesome, I might say. The attendees were pretty enthused as well. There were some really talented teens in attendance. I didn't have my camera, as I usually do, so I didn't get any photos. I will add a poem I wrote from the poetry writing exercise Laura gave us that the participants seemed to like. If you don't understand it, you probably had to be there. It was a cool exercise.

Writing Exercise by Maryee

The mother will write with a mild pencil

She's had enough of slick pointy ends

that have no real say so in how she feels

Ink stinks
She thinks
as she glides the wooden brush across the paper

with subtle dullness rather fast

The shade of her dreary disposition
Dark misty clouds

She will, but her story, it will only be led by her feelings



Without ink

She thinks
and then she writes again to fill the lonely void
