I have missed the past couple of Stanza meetings, due to events in Birmingham. This month the Stanza meeting also clashed with an event in Birmingham, however I have missed not going to the poetry society meetings, so I turned down the opportunity to perform in the city and stayed local instead.
It was just 2 days before my birthday – so I bought a cake to take to the meeting and made STANZA (much to the amusement of others) my first BIRTHDAY event!
I had a really enjoyable evening and felt right at home editing and taking criticism on board. It is good to be back. I already have my poem ready for our next meeting!
