Foolish Verse

and other nonsensical endeavours

Sunday 3/5     15:45 - 17:30

Where do we find words? Single ones, lines?

How do they become lyrical, poetic?

How do we open to that coming to us, rather than feeling under pressure to make it happen?

How does poetry come from pressure?

From exhaustion?

From idleness and stumbling?

How can we open to the constant surprise of not knowing?
