I love my local library.
It is home to countless treasures: pages, poets, poetry nights, number of smiles beyond all words.
Our librarians are devoted to share the power of the print, recorded voice or fiddler's bid and endeavour to devour miles across islands to reach out to communities separated by roaring tides.
As a poet, such devotion goes well beyond might of the pen!
So, here and there, we come to gather and air pages or a song... Inside the walls of Ringan's Church at the Hillhead, we are blessed by such dynamic team! Our librarians have a passion to share might of the spoken word and provides writings with a home, where we belong in all seasons...
Last Saturday was Open Mic' - three minutes of pleasure per poet or participating reader.
Thank you, Fiona, for such evening - thank you, dear Shetland Library, for harbouring so many treasures and a home! Shetland Library
In this cycle of creation, poetry nights feel de rigueur.
