This weekend the Bridgewater Public Library hosted a poetry circle with 6 local South Shore poets. Listeners enjoyed poems on the topic of balance from: Veryan Haysom, E.Alex Pierce, Alison Smith, Carole Langille, Joanne Jefferson and Brian Braganza.
Following this the group of listeners responded with reflections of how each poet was able to invoke memories which related to the listeners own individual experiences. They also spoke an appreciation for how the poets could capture these experiences in the moment and then bring them back to life in the room.
This event was funded by the League of Canadian Poets to celebrate National Poetry Month and was a great display of the creative talent living in and near Bridgewater.
