Poetry. Poetry is a large part of life. Whether one is sitting at a table with a pen in hand, typing on a computer, walking in the woods, or just sitting still, poetry is all around. Breathe in. Breathe out. Look up. Look down. What do you see? Close your eyes. What do you feel? What do you hear? It is in taking a moment to sense the present that one can clearly realize just exactly the beat or rhythm of that time and space. If you would like, take those sensations and write down a few. There are different styles to use for a more structured approach. For less structure, just free write. Now, look at the picture above. Imagine Slippery Elm. What would you say about him? Where is he in this moment?
