POETRY & LITERATURE

The visual arts, with their paintings and sculpture and other attention commanding sights can seem to be more captivating than the "spoken and writen word" but HMAP seeks to give literary enthusiast members just recognition.

To involve the greater area community in literary events, HMAP holds several reading events throughout the year, sometimes in conjunction with art exhibitions, and invites the participation of readers of poetry, novels, short stories and essays as well as other forms of writing such as articles and screen plays. Presenters may of course read from their own creations or they may interpret the works of the famous, infamous and not so famous writers of the past or present day. Some events also include performance art and musical presentations.

Persons interested in creating literaturary works and those interested in being entertained by them are encouraged to join the monthly "get togethers" of the Artists and Writers Group and to attend the reading events. What better setting might one imagine than a rustic old mill in a woodsy park to enjoy poetry and stories.

A Compositional Analysis
in Three Sentences


(First Sentence)

Lee Robison
2005
 

First, you will notice the white of the white
man's body and its curve that is part of the spiral
of their violent encounter, a round of violence
repeated in the ring of men who are not
as men might be, but as these men are,
with their blood lust leers and no
care for loss or win, but only eager
for this rampant whirl of ruin to continue, rise
gyre, and climax again and again and again.
