We welcomed poet Tamsin Smith to share her work and a few of her favorite poems with the group. Below is a message from Tamsin and a few of our favorite photos.
I’ve shared my poetry in a wide range of settings, but nothing before has felt as disarmingly deep and connected as last night’s Parlay House gathering. It felt thoroughly liberating to be surrounded by so many open, curious, and kind female faces. Such a powerful and unexpected sensation of acceptance — Wow! Thank you to all the muses present. I’ll carry your radiant energy with me forever after.
Here is a beautiful story from Pablo Neruda’s youth. To me, it captures everything that poetry offers. And it captures the spirit of Parlay House. You all are a gift.
