Many people have great and strange ideas while taking a shower. While that happens to me too, it also happens when I'm playing solitaire. So this is a collection of musings and poetry that come to me while clicking on cards.

My name is Penney Simpson and I own Beatnix Coffeehouse in Waco, Texas. I opened it in September, 2005 with a vision in mind. I wanted a traditional coffeehouse complete with live music, musical open mic night, discussion groups and poetry readings. I got the live music going and am still working on the open mic night. Because I was no poet never been to a poetry reading and I didn't know any poets I had know idea how to get a poetry night going.

To my great fortune, two ladies, sisters Mary and Jen, showed up one evening and asked me about poetry evening and I explained to them my problem. As they were both writers and poets in their own right they agreed to take on the task of getting the ball rolling.

I listened in on the first evening and was delighted. I never thought poetry could be so much fun. My twelve year old son, Alex, even jumped on the band wagon. He disappeared for about 20 minutes and returned with I poem he'd written on the other side of the cafe. I read it and encouraged him to get up and read it. I and everyone else were truly impressed.

I was so inspired by Mary, Jen and Alex that I decided to give it a shot myself and what the hell while I am at it, I may as well start a site and post it here.
