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.

Future Imperfect by Linda Stitt

Despite my present miseries 
I know since everything decays,
that years from now, in retrospect,
these will be the good old days.

~ from Adjust Your Set (Natural Heritage Books, 1997)
