April 2011 Open Reading Review

Filed under: Open Reading Minutes — show1miyamura @ 6:51 am

With a warm spring breeze in the air and cherry blossoms just starting
to leak out from their buds, we gathered at the Red Rock.  It was a potent
turnout of 7 Readers and a quality audience.

off of roses for you.

You didn’t mention on your profile that you are a penguin

Prose < Excerpts from Ghost Book: Seers >
I know it wasn’t a dream, it was real.
Prose < The tragedy of Tsu City >
Ghosts stalked the beach at night

Albert Sussler ( USA )
Prose <  After Shock >
Realizing the damaged to their daily lives will take longer to sink in.
Prose < The Coroner >
Little girl with a bag of food, never to be eaten, to heavy to run

Linda Donan ( USA )
Prose < Clarence and the Bus , Chapter 4 , Finding the Bus>
I was headed for the wrong Mexico.

Joe Sichi ( USA )
Poem <Goat Song >
Some loves are perfect, they either must or cannot last
