I could not be a poet without the natural world. Someone else could. But not me. For me the door to the woods is the door to the temple.
Some poets need nature for creative energy. We need creativity to find wild nature. For naturalists of our ilk, poetry is a path into wild places and into the wildness within. The Naturalist School has spent the winter walking wildly and wildly writing poems, making ephemeral art, and warming our feet by the fire.
We would love to share our original and feral poems with you and to try something new: meeting in the city! Writing into Wildness: Readings by The Naturalist School.
Sunday March 3rd, 1pm at Confluence 1627 S 17th St, Lincoln, Nebraska. 1pm. Free admission, donations of $10 appreciated!
