Ink runs from the corners of my mouth
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry.
~Mark Strand, “Eating Poetry,” Reasons for Moving, 1968
You could do a movie based on the folks who came to read poetry at the Serenity Inspirational Gifts & Coffee in Glenside, Pa. You just know there is a good story behind each of them.
Once a month they gather to read their latest writings. I was entranced, entertained and moved.
Sharone Gaither (in the yellow) organizes the reading. You can tell this is about so much more than poetry. It’s about life and sharing it.
