…Ignite us, exquisite truth./ We sing you, shout you,/ weave you, every breath, your fruit/from “Exquisite Fruit,” by Janet E. Aalfs
abundant, your fearless seeds/ we spread.
Every movement for social justice includes poetry and poets. Through creative use of language, in the process of working for good, we can acknowledge, affirm, and make useful the powerful transforming energy of words. In this workshop, in an atmosphere of unconditional positive regard, we will explore our own and others’ poetic offerings. Through free writing, simple movement meditation, and openhearted sharing, we will weave a group poem in the spirit of resistance, persistence, and healing.
