Poetry, Food for the Soul
Poetry can nourish us in ways that nothing else can. In good times and bad times, we often make it part of our public rituals and our private meditations. It can be an utterance from deep within us or a little ditty passing pretty. In this camp, we will read and write all kinds of poetry on all kinds of themes. We will share favorite poems, written by us or by others, and, looking at poetry as a craft, we will discuss ways of making our meaning clear, beautiful, powerful, or whatever we most want it to be. I hope you can join us! Part of the joy of camps like this is that we can meet like-minded people.
