Holly & I were honoured to be guests at the Chicklets Poetry Party. We are the first humans to visit the Coop. It was such a wonderful event, I decided to make a Scrapbook.
I found some vignette sleeves for the pictures, and painted a cover. The painting expresses the movement of the Beat Generation into the Hippy generation.
Joyce and her little sister, Sandie, opened the party. They want you to know if you click on the pics of the party, you can read the poems!
Holly, one of the best poets, ever, wrote a stunning piece. She was accompanied by tambourine. Holly is so cool. She can snap her fingers. I’m still learning how!
Kathy wrote and read 2 poems.
Flicka and her mom were rescued from a factory farm. She read 2 amazing poems by Melanie.
Albert and his best pal Ducky wrote and read a poem each. Albert was rescued from a bunny farm.
Tommy read a poem my cat Johnny wrote for Gi’s cat, Em. It’s called Für Emily.
As I am not a poet, I performed “The Egg” to Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven, which is poetry in motion. I spent 2 weeks practising hatching, pecking, hopping & strutting.
THE MAKING OF POETRY PARTY
No expense was spared. In the “Making Of” slideshow you’ll see: the multiple committee meeting, a nest being made & lit for my Egg dance, mikes being adjusted for Chicklets & humans, the tent where Holly & I slept, the special Bunny & Duck slippers that Rosy made for Holly & me, and the Welcoming Committee.
There was an after party, or as we say in film the Wrap Party.
Holly and I send a huge Thank you to Georgiann!
Holly has written this most beautiful poem for the scrapbook. It is especially for Gigi.
