As World Poetry Day approaches, Waterside Community Center members are invited to “Share a Poem“!
This Thursday, from 2pm to 4pm, share a poem you’ve written or bring a personal favorite for the group to enjoy. Sit, mingle, relax and enjoy refreshments with your friends at Waterside.
“Poetry reaffirms our common humanity by revealing to us that individuals, everywhere in the world, share the same questions and feelings. Poetry is the mainstay of oral tradition and, over centuries, can communicate the innermost values of diverse cultures.
In celebrating World Poetry Day, March 21, UNESCO recognizes the unique ability of poetry to capture the creative spirit of the human mind.
One of the main objectives of the Day is to support linguistic diversity through poetic expression and to offer endangered languages the opportunity to be heard within their communities.”
