In Celebration of Spring - A Poem-Making Experience to Cultivate Possibility

Sunday, March 10, 2019

Sponsored by Decatur Healing Arts

We begin by waking up,
by understanding the intimate connections
between ourselves and our place
and the spiritual possibilities
to which those connections point.
~ Abiel Abbot, 1804
from Sermons to Mariners

For all the good sentiment that Spring is cracked up to be, we know that, in this first and new season, there can be harsh and driving rain, mud, late frost that kills tender fruit, a kind of awakening in our hearts like a clenched fist that stings as it tries to open.

As we wake up from the sleep of winter, a deeper awareness and realization of our losses may come. That is, such sudden and raw awakening can deliver cruelties.

Yet...what could be better-in-this-life than stepping into a 'mud-luscious' time that brings creative children running not to mention that balloon-man whose sole (and soul!) purpose is to open our winter-ragged hearts (no matter our age) to something called play?

Spring says we are made to play - as in, "Play ball!"

We invite you to gather together Sunday afternoon, March 10 to write during this time of stepping through that ancient portal of a season that opens us towards what is growing & green, what is possible & true.

By writing, especially with poetry and poem-making, we can claim this time of deep renewal as our own and share in this together.
