I had a real treat tonight.
I was listening to WMPG on the way home and heard Blunt Youth Radio having a 1 hour show about poetry.
They played some of their favorite poems, had local youth and Portland poets out there including Nate Amadon, President of Port Veritas, and amazing local poet, Zach Dickie.
Was impressed with the love of poetry and as always how great Portland’s youth poets are.
Was also happy to find out there was just a Falmouth youth slam, would love to have gone.
Poetry makes me happy.
Hearing love for it makes me happy.
Also love the a youth poet already won a monthly slam at Port Veritas this year.
Seeing our young wordsmiths, makes me think we can have a better future.
Children are our future, teach them well, teach them to love words, teach them to love poetry.
You never know what you can get.
