PPS Blue Moon Reading October 7, 2013

Praise for Satwant’s book:

“As lovers of God’s creation in nature, Satwant Pander’s book The Healing Power of Nature pulled me into its pages. In her poem on Page 13, the line “The tree keeps me company when I am alone” –  how true! Nice to see her daughter Kiran’s comment – page 10  and also Soul to Soul, page 70″ – Donna Bishop (Founder of Poets Potpourri Society).

Blue Moon shines again

Posted by Violet Nesdoly on September 12, 2013

On September 9th the Poets Potpourri Society resumed after taking the summer off.

To honour International Literacy Day, Sharon Crowley from Literacy Matters Abbotsford began the evening by telling us about some of the literacy programs available for all ages through her organization. (For information, check out their website).

Ten poets took advantage of the Open Mic segment, reading poems on an array of subjects, from summer to surgery, intellect to alienation, saying farewell to savouring the wine of life.

After coffee time, featured reader Alvin Ens introduced his latest book, Must Have A Sense of Humour.

Violet and Irene, Alvin’s wife, read prose pieces from this witty collection, written over years with many prize-winning and previously published pieces in the bunch. Alvin concluded the reading by sharing several of the book’s poems. If anyone left frowning, it certainly wasn’t  his fault.
