Why should the love stop after Feb. 14? During the month of February, Mellissa Marie Watson and Grace Watson are focusing on all aspects of love. By doing so they are inviting the public to a poetry open mic night to share their stories through the written and performed word.
The two hosts explain that all aspects of love are to be focused on. This includes platonic relationships, passion, self-love and heartbreak.
Pieces to be read at the event, being held at 6 p.m. Feb. 19 at Legends Sports Bar and Grill in Bloomington, can be original pieces or renowned pieces from beloved poets. As long as the focus is love, all creators are welcome.
Poetry is often a common form to express love through the written word. This, and love letters of course, are renowned for epitomizing what love means through their unique literacy style.
