EcoPoetics has come to an end sadly. It was a great three weeks. We had such an awesome teacher *Len Germinara* and so many interesting speakers that came to talk to us, which we were all so grateful for. All the students are supportive and respectful, and that really helped create a safe environment to read poetry. All the poems I heard were really fantastic! EcoPoetics was helpful in connecting with everything that was going on around us, from the beautiful Nantucket landscape to living with strangers (now friends). Three weeks down and many more to go!
Swings creaking, moving, dancing
seashells crunch with every step
wind stealing scarfs from peoples necks
birds gossiping into the breeze
waves crashing on to the shore
this is the music of late January.
