Awakened Eye: A Poetry Playshop on Resilience
THIS PLAYSHOP IS FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA STUDENTS AND COMMUNITY
Awakened eye seeing freshly. What does that do to the old blood moving through its channels.
—Naomi Shihab Nye, from “Fresh”
Bring your curiosity, your stuckness, your skepticism and your wonder to this virtual playground, where poems will serve as invitations to change the way you meet the day and meet your life. As your life changes, what stories are you telling yourself about the change and your ability to meet it? In this two-hour poetry playshop, poet Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer will share poems about resilience, then offer prompts that lean on metaphor to help you re-see the world, to reframe your thoughts, to open to life as it is. Newbies and Nobel Prize winners welcome.
