Monday 18 October | Somerset Alumni Association presents Words that Heal

“Something old (Alumni), Something New (current Wordsmiths), Something NOT Borrowed (all Original verse), Something Bluesy (Introspection always is)”

Touch the hand of God,

And for an achingly beautiful moment,
glimpse,
Through a tear in the fabricof our existence,
A reality
beyond this one.
Where stillness holds,
Where worlds stop revolving,
and take note,
Where breath slows
and life is held, sacred,
beyond this ken.

(Michael Brohier)
Words that Heal are back to blow your mind with All Original, out there, radical and innovative Poetry. We will speak, perform and chat to you about what makes us tick, what we think about, what makes us happy and sad, and how we see the world.You will laugh with us, rejoice with us, commiserate with us, cry with us and feel the oneness of the Common Human Condition. What better way to spend a Monday evening on a fast-fading Autumn day on the Gold Coast?
