Ariadne’s Note: World Poetry Café Hosts Ariadne Sawyer and Israel Mota along with tech Kelly welcomed Gordon McKee to the World Poetry Café. Israel began with a poem of Chilean Nobel Prize Winner, Pablo Neruda. It reminded me of our Neruda plant which was brought up from Neruda’s home in Chile. For years, we transported it to World Poetry Life Celebrations of Neruda until it grew too big. Above is the photo of the Neruda plant along with the Mongolian Poet Dr. Hadaa Sendoo.
Gordon read poems from the Greek Poet C P Cavafy who lived in Egypt. For more information on this interesting poet:
