This was our first meeting since the reading at Amerika Haus and three writers were present: Jim, Mu and Andy. Despite just three, the topics still managed to vary, from ‘Stream of consciousness' to 'bio-chemistry' and love. Yes! We even got on to love.
The first of these, Jim’s poem, compared people and life events to disparate elements, such as leaves drifting along a stream, while Andy’s excerpt from the short story “Clockwatcher” centred around a New Years Eve spent pining for a lost love. The three poems Mu read approached varied themes: one, ‘Exciting Memories,’ was on a research survey in the delta region of Burma, (her home country), while another was titled “Belief”. The third, ‘Bio-Chemistry,’ emphasised that biological rhymes are the symphony of chemicals, genes, life, environment and energy.
The next meeting will be on the 1st of April.
