Poetry in the Park 2015 is over...

A full day that began at 6 am as I arose and prepared to drive to Zion Park, an hour one way, for the 6th annual Poetry in the Park that I am in charge of. We had the most participants of any year so far with 34 individuals from mostly Utah and with one poet from Colorado. Our teacher Lola Haskins came from Florida to join us and we had eight local high school students attend. Needless to say I'm exhausted after a full day.

We had poets of all ages high school through eighty year olds, all interested in poetry.
Our teach Lola Haskins was excellent in teaching us
about writing better beginnings and endings to our poems.

(R) Marisa Ericksen enjoyed a day of learning at Poetry in the Park

What a wonderful day! I imagine it was a "good" kind of tired.
