EARTH POETRY with Stephen Wing Saturday, Feb. 28, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm Lake Claire Community Land Trust 280 Arizona Ave. NE (off McLendon) Atlanta 30307 Oneness with nature is a prominent theme among poets from prehistoric times till today. "Earth Poetry" is poetry not about nature, but about our relationship with nature as individual participants in a living world. In an age of widespread alienation from nature, it is one way to re-connect to our beautiful home planet. A small group of poets has been meeting every season at Oakhurst Community Garden to deepen our relationship with nature through the art of poetry. Last fall, we left the Garden and set out on a pilgrimage to experience other wild, green corners of Atlanta. we can crank up the wood stove in the Gorilla Grill and have a warm refuge if it's a chilly day. Learn more about the Land Trust here. (Let me know if you have a place to recommend for Spring.) Bring poetry to share, your own or a favorite poet's. Then we'll split up and wander, gathering inspirations and observations, and come back together to talk or write. Please spread the word to active or aspiring poets, and join us if you're so inspired! Donations welcome but not required. Earth blessings, Stephen Wing Underfoot Every time I travel this dirt track down through the winter woods into the hollow or up the mountain again, I stop right here. Standing on the packed earth of an old logging road where the creek slips quietly through its rusty culvert underfoot, I’m not so much listening as feeling a kind of tickling caress through the soles of my shoes and I recognize a crossing of paths, a choice, a way back if I could only turn and follow. -- = + = Stephen Wing author of Free Ralph!
