Kelly Elmore spent a few days this winter reading Mary Oliver’s poems in Big Bend National Park. Those poems reminded her to look carefully, to enjoy the spine of a cactus and the play of shadows across a canyon wall. This poetry reading will include a selection of poems about mindfulness and nature, poems about the gorgeous details of our everyday world, poems about noticing. You’ll encounter Mary Oliver, Wendell Berry, William Wordsworth, Robert Frost, and many more. If you have a favorite you’d like to see included, please let us know!
