A new feature, added to Colorscape Chenango a few years ago, is a poetry contest. There is a Youth division, and an open division, I had the opportunity, and time, to view the thirteen poets in the youth division. Trying to pick favorites, was very difficult. Each of them had something special to share with the audience, and opened windows into their souls. Sometimes it was done gently, and sometimes the words hit me in the head, but never the less, when all was said and done, I felt like I knew at least a part of each of them very intimately. The very depth and strength of their performances, was impressive and I was encouraged to see these young people exploring creativity using the written and spoken word. Thank you all for a most enjoyable visit.
My hat is off to these talented young women and men for being so thoughtful, expressing themselves so well, and most of all for sharing their insights with us, we can all learn a lot from what they have to say.
