sometimes when it rains

Poetry is something that is often kept in the hidden corners of the world of literature. And still there is so much poetry around:
poetry in songs,
poetry in what people tell,
poetry in what people pass on,
poetry in the words that are blown around by the wind,
poetry in the words remembered from long ago.

At the 14 Poetry Africa international poetry festival in Durban (South Africa) people could enjoy poetry.  Not just poetry read from white pages and black letters, but also poetry performed, poetry lived, poetry that takes you along into a new world.
