About the Event
It's Poetry Night, folks.... Sometimes poetry, to me, can seem like modern art: if you don't like it, you "don't get it". And sometimes, I stumble upon a poem that illuminates an entire experience or feeling in a few words and am reminded that I just need to wait for the right poem to hit a nerve. Tonight, we explore and discuss poems about death and what this art form might bring up for you- or not- when it comes to the topics of death and dying.
Sign up for access to a handful of poems about death and use the time between now and then to explore and gather your own collection to share with the group!
Register for access to an optional article and the Zoom link for our gathering. Please note the date and time zone.
5pm PST/ 6pm MST/ 7pm CST/ 8pm EST.
