Environmental poetry workshop



I had the honor of facilitating 2 poetry workshops at NOVA in Seattle this week. The students were very engaged. I hope I get to come back there.

Here’s a poem from the environmental workshop a student created. The prompt was to write a poem about a walk in your environment. Thank you Harrison for sending this in. It really shows that you are watching.


a plume of exhaust hits my face and fills my lungs
a burrito occupies a seat at the bus stop
plastic tumbleweeds roll down the street in the wind
people rush around me shoving their way through the crowd
wet clothing piled in a corner
the crunch of broken glass
and the squish of rotting fruit
a sick heaving man leans
unidentified stains on a wall
cars race as the light turns green
dirty water flows down the drain
