The Catacomb and Chrysalis of Poetry (Westobou Festival Event)
October 5 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
October 5th, 2019 | 12 PM – 2 PM | Westobou Gallery
Poetry serves as platform, magnification, and realization of this great juxtapose that forms our reality. Often one thinks of death solely as the loss of a person or pet. We might overlook the end of a relationship or moving to another city. Life too is not just a beginning, but can be found in hopes and dreams held within. All of this becomes richer and more empowered through poetry, especially read aloud and expounded upon through dialogue. Of such will be this gathering.
