Eating the Moon: Exploring Metaphor Through Poetry and Play
The art of writing, whether stories or poems, is less a way of knowing and more a means of discovery. One of the greatest tools in this adventure is metaphor, the language of connection. In quantum physics, they speak of the holographic universe, the idea that the powerful energy of the whole can be found in the tiniest particles. When we compare our life/human life to any part of the world—a blade of grass, a nest, an old car—it can change the way we see. Join in six weeks of play as we explore “the great muscle of metaphor, “ as Adrienne Rich calls it. No previous experience writing poetry is necessary.
