Service Description

We have all experienced several kinds of loss over the last two years. Some 200,000 American children have lost a parent. To have lived several decades is to have lost someone inexpressibly dear. Poetry is the language we use to express the inexpressible. One way people have coped with loss over the millennia is to write about it. In this workshop we will be reading and discussing elegies written by several wonderful poets who, I trust, will inspire us to write and share our own. This is not a critical workshop but an exploratory one. We will embark together on a path of contemplative self-discovery and hopefully come out on the other end a little wise, a little deeper, a little more appreciative of the written word. All beginning to advanced poets are welcome.
