Skeleton Architecture of Our Lives: A Bridge Across Our Fears

Categories:

by Rev. Leah Hart-Landsberg

Poetry is an ancient global art form about which much has been made and said. There are probably as many opinions on and uses for it as there are poems and poets. Based on this month’s Wellspring Wednesday adult enrichment program (6:30 pm on February 8th; theme of poetry as a spiritual practice), Rev. Leah, worship leader Tina Main and local acclaimed poet Cathryn Cofell will reflect on the idea that poetry can be a skeleton architecture of our lives. This metaphor of skeleton architecture comes to us from Audre Lorde, who says that “poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.”
