To all my poetry friends,
You're invited to this month's North Andover Poets Corner, Tue April 27th, 7PM. The feature poet is Andrea Vallario, followed by open mic.
Andrea Vallario is a comrade of the mystics, exploring life through the interplay between the inner worlds, nature, and lessons amidst culture and community. She came across her greatest influence, Hafez, during a candlelit guided yoga class. Upon hearing the words ‘This place where you are right now, God circled on a map for you...” she became a loyal follower of the teachings.
Along with her own linguistic murmurings and an expanding poetic palate including Kabir, Mira, Tagore, and Mary Oliver, she practices her writing technique as a member of several local poetry groups including: Rockport Poets, Grey Court Poet's, Haverhill River Bards, and the Merrimac Mic Poets.
Find some of her work and contact info here: TheCenterOfYourBeing.weebly.com
I asked Andrea - what should this month's theme be? She said: Grace. So if you are looking for inspiration, let that word be your starting point & guide. As always, a suggestion to spur the creative spirits...
