Poet Jane Hirshfield said "... the feeling I have about poem-writing (is) that it is always an exploration, of discovering something I didn't already know.  Who I am shifts from moment to moment, year to year.  What I can perceive does as well.  A new poem peers into mystery, into whatever lies just beyond the edge of knowable ground."

I bring a different poem to the writing classes each week, not only to inspire but to introduce new poets to the group members.

Some Days It’s All Fuzzy by Gregory Orr

Some days it’s all fuzzy.
I can’t find the world,
Can’t find the beloved.
Can’t even find the words.

Time to lie back and listen.
Maybe something’s being said,
Something I haven’t heard.

Time to stop talking	
And let the beloved speak.

Time to trust it all;
To stop searching
And let the beloved seek.

~ From Concerning The Book That Is The Body Of The Beloved 
(Copper Canyon Press, 2005)
