We’ll gather to share and discuss poems of well-known writers such as Rumi, Joy Harjo, John Muir, Wendy Lewis, Octavio Paz, and others, looking at their subject matter as well as how the poems are shaped. How might these poems help us to forge a relationship between ourselves and trees, and with nature in general? Participants will be invited to respond in writing and share what they’ve written. Prior to writing, be prepared for a brief but essential pause for a quiet walkabout. Bring your camp chair if you wish. Held in Jericho.
