The Vessels of Poetry
Saturdays; October 1, 8
9:00 am-12:00 pm
Our aim will be to remove the fear of poetry and have fun with poetic form. We’ll dive into forms like Haiku, Sonnet, Cinquain, Bricolage, and Ghazal. Poetic form is like a container that holds the poem. We’ll look at these containers, and if some don’t work, we’ll break them!
There is a great rush of air as the eagles fly from their perches, their great wings beating around your ears. You duck down and put your arms over your head, afraid that a wing will dash against your face.
from The Owl and the Fox Trap by Michael Kiesow Moore
