Poetry night

This night, 12 May, six poets in a poetry slam.

First on stage, Robin Veen. With poems on silence, roses, and other plants.

Then, Ditmar Bakker, with sonnets.

Yours truly had poems on dogs, the Iraq war, and a ladybug.

Then, after a pause, the first round continued with Pom Wolff. Death and birds were among his subjects.

Then, Dick Keulemans; about children, and love.

Then, Sander Ritman, with one long poem, about love.

Then, four poets in the second round.

First, Robin on the month May. Then, Pom. Then Dick, about his work as a dentist. Then, Sander.

The jury decided that Pom and Robin would proceed to the final.

There, Pom won the jury prize. And Robin won the audience vote. Both will be in the slam poetry next round this fall.
