Pi Poetry Series 

Presents

 

No Poetry Reading this Month

 

Our Regularly Scheduled Reading Wednesday, March 18, 2020 Is Cancelled.

 

Instead we will practice the Poetry of Silence.

  

Blaise Pascal tells us, “All men's miseries derive from not being able to sit in a quiet room alone.”

 

And Lao Tzu adds the following:

 

Thirty spokes are joined together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that allows the wheel to function.

We mold clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that makes the vessel useful.

We fashion wood for a house,
but it is the emptiness inside
that makes it livable.

We work with the substantial,
but the emptiness is what we use.

 

 

On the third Wednesday of each month (EXECPT THIS MONTH), The Poetry Institute Poetry Series celebrates an eclectic mix of poetic voices.  Free.  Refreshments.  (And participants are invited to bring something to share.)  Open mic.  Outstanding featured readers.  In a casual setting.  Open to all members of the public (and even others).

 

 The Institute Library
847 Chapel Street
New Haven, CT

right next door to the Tattoo Parlor

 

Doors Open at 6:30. Reading starts at 7:00.

Please arrive a few minutes early to sign up for the reading.

 

 Great Poetry!  

 

 In a Warm, Friendly Environment
