Poetry embodies the human spirit,
communicates the sacred,
transcends cultures, generations, languages, time…
The power of poetry lies in its ability
…to ignite curiosity and encourage openness;
…to spark dialogue;
…to connect and energise;
…to offer peace;
…to facilitate self-reflection, self-revelation
and problem-solving;
…to distil human experience
…and ultimately, to plant hope…

"… [A great afternoon, relaxing, fun, learning. My days now with a new appreciation & looking forward to my new journey. It has begun, one day at a time. Whatever it is, with words.."

“…Wonderful afternoon. Enriched and inspired to give words some space to work their magic…”
