Kelowna Poetry Slam: Canada Day Throwdown - Meet the Poets

Ricco Dicar

I fell in love with poetry after teaching the mechanics of it to my Grade 2 students. We investigated all the different forms of poetry and delved deep into the Haiku. After that I began to write my own as a model for the students. I enjoyed it from that day. The way chaos can meet organization and flow so eloquently after hours of polishing is quite astonishing. Its also satisfying to see a connection between artist and audience; hopefully inspiring others to express themselves.
