Publife

 We’ve been on a bender for a week at the dVerse Poets’ Pub, to celebrate its 3rd anniversary.  The final prompt of the week is about what life at the pub means to us.
I’ve already posted twice today, but what the heck, I have to join in this one to show my appreciation of all that the hosts and bar staff do for us.

Motivator, accelerator
stimulator, educator
communicator, resonator,
I’ve run out of tors
to describe the community
which is the dVerse Poets’
Pub.

Anticipation
of good conversation,
prompts and wisdom,
not to mention
fun

All this keeps us writing
and reading
socialising
and enjoying
our Pub.

    Great choice of tors – and do you know that ‘Tor’ is a gate in German? (also a goal in football, but never mind that). So I like the thought of us all gathering at the gates of something new and beautiful…
