Tuesday Poem: The Birthday Poem and John Cleese on Creativity

The Tuesday Poem is  2 years old today.  To celebrate we've been writing a group poem - one line each - over the last two weeks on the theme of  'A Birthday'.  It's been great fun, but very difficult to do.  How do you follow someone else's words, while leaving the door open for the poet who's going to write the next line?  You can see the result at the Tuesday Poem blogsite.

On a lighter note, I found this clip of John Cleese talking (for once quite seriously) about Creativity.



Now I'm off to Worcester to do a poetry reading with northern Irish poet Nigel McLoughlin at the Lamb and Flag Pub, (30 The Tythings), Wednesday 18th April at 7.30pm.  Entry Free.  For details see Poets On Fire.
