Hello, people! How has your week been? Mine has been okay o. I am still in shock at how April just breezed by. The 1st quarter of the year is almost over. *gasp* I am not complaining of course.
Anyway, last weekend, I attended the much-anticipated, much-talked about poetry night at Brown Missionary Baptist Church. According to the flier, it was supposed to be a night of:
- Free Food
- Dynamic Music
- Open Mic
- Spoken Word
- Great Singing
And now the question is: Did it live up to its expectations? Yes, it did! My enthusiasm might stem from the fact that this was my first time attending an event of this kind, i.e. poetry, spoken word-type event. I enjoyed it, and I see many more poetry nights in my future 🙂 Unfortunately, I got there late, so I did not get pictures from the very beginning, but I will share some of the few pictures I got anyway. Many of them were not clear, so I omitted those. I sat at the very back on the bleachers (it was in the gym). So from my vantage point, here is what I observed:
The two male MCs also each performed their own poems. There was a break (to stuff our faces), and after that the event continued. But, people left in droves after eating. *smh* Surprised much? I wasn’t o. Some people apparently did not get to perform that night, so they will be given another chance to share their talent at another gospel poetry night. For a first time event, this was well-organized and well-attended too.
C’est finit! Enjoy the rest of your week.
