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.

To Know The Dark by Wendell Berry

To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark.  Go without sight, 
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.

~ from Farming, A Hand Book (Counterpoint, 2011)
