Our Poems Take Flight

We had our last spring poetry session with Rachel Moritz, our wonderful poet, on the first day of summer!  Rachel inspired us with poems from Emily Dickinson, and then we went on to create our own prose about hope, birds and hands.  Many thanks to Rachel and we can’t wait until she returns in late August for our next 6-week residency.  Many thanks to Compas for help in arranging our classes and to the Minnesota State Arts Board for the grant that makes these classes possible.

What do we notice about our hands – that they are made to hold someone else’s hand!

Oh, Ted, please don’t eat the bird. It’s meant to inspire us, not make us hungry!

We got very philosophical taking about hope today.
