Comedy vs. Tragedy

Earlier this month I enjoyed Nova Productions‘s Comedy vs.Tragedy Show at Cider Riot in Portland. The evening included music, comedy and poetry. The fun mix was hosted by Mighty Mike McGee.

Poem: Let’s Hear it for Green-leafed Trees

Let’s Hear it for Green-leafed Trees

By Nancy Woods


Each fall, red-leafed maples

Grab all the attention

Garnering oohs and ahs

With bus tours centered around them


But where would they be

Without the earlier, green-leafed versions

That transform into burnt-orange



Brash is one way of being

Meanwhile, give a shout out

To the quiet side of yourself

That occasionally gives way to the bold
