“We are breathing in our lineages together.”
~ Sharon Olds, Meeting a Stranger
This week we gathered for our first Fall session at the library. It was a lovely discussion about various origins – from meeting a stranger, the shaping of stones, the love of cribbage – and cultural identity. Thank you to everyone that came!
A list of the poems we read
I’ve added some links where I could to the poems, poets or books if you would like to explore.
Meeting a Stranger by Sharon Olds
An Eastern Ballad by Alan Ginsberg
Small Song, Round Stone by Jan Zwicky
Saturday Nights Out to the Roy’s by Corey Lavender
Poetry reading & writing prompt for next week
When we meet again, bring along poems inspired by the theme. There is no obligation to write, but if you feel inspired, you are welcome to bring your poem to share at the next gathering.
