We traveled down the I-95 corridor to Wilmington for Poetry with a Point at Hummigbirds Lounge in Trolley Square. As with most poetry events we attend in Delaware the place was packed. The evening offered an eclectic mix of original and established works of poetry, fiction, music and art. The Host Bert Moniz did an excellent job of keeping the evening moving and it was quite enjoyable. Billed as “To Anna and Pablo with Love” the evening did not disappoint.
Kenny Vanello opened and closed the evening with a beautiful song Love is a Simple Melody.
Owen Compton continued the theme in song
Bob Davis shared a libidinous piece of flash fiction.
A tribute to Pablo Neruda followed with Luz reading the original Spanish version and Diane Sahms-Guarnieri reading the English translation of Sonnets 93 and 94. Diane shared an introduction into the works of Neruda.
Luz displayed a painting dedicated to her grandfather.
Roya Carney followed with the songs Bring You My Love and Dancer.
Diane Sahms-Guarnieri reads a poem from her collection “Images of Being”
Anton Shepsly and Barb Gray followed with reading Anton reading the original Russian and Barb reading the English translation of works by Anna Akhmatova followed by a discussion “Is it lost in Translation”.
