Inspired by poet, Rosemerry Whatola Trommer, who has been writing a poem a day since 2006, I started writing a poem a day in 2021 on my father's birthday. My father, who passed away in 2018, was a poet. What better day to gift myself with a poetry writing practice.
However, I wondered, do I have time for a daily writing practice? I was doubtful. I have a full and busy life and had never been successful at making a commitment to write every day. Yet, once I started, I did not want to stop.
This practice has helped me remain tethered to my essential self during these uncertain times. It has also allowed me to be more fully and deeply present for my own life. And while sometimes my poems don't feel like poems, and while sometimes I only spend 5 minutes on one, the poem always brings me a gift.
I would love to share the practice with you. In this workshop we'll read poems, write some of our own, and explore the practice of a poem a day and the gifts it brings.
No poetry experience necessary.
