Somebody out there likes my poem.


A little bragging today. 🙂 A fellow blogger thought enough of something I sent to post it on her blog.

I am too klutzy I am sure to ever actually successfully maneuver a real Tango, but I can at least listen and write about it. The poem came from an Al Young(California Poet Laureate May 2005)  poetry workshop. He put on a CD of Yo Yo Ma playing tango (Soul of the Tango) and asked us to write down whatever the music elicited from us.

My poem, Tango, was the result.

Cafe girl’s blog is a great read. All kinds of things from the sights and sounds (musicians) of Montreal, memories of friends and family, to advice on what not to believe even if you hear it in several languages, to … yes, learning the Tango.

Here’s another tango link if you are interested in the history of the dance.
