The Body Poetic for Arts for the Aging (5)
On December 8, 2023, as a teaching artist for Arts for the Aging, certified poetry therapist Lauren Mazow Boyle and I presented a series of workshops entitled "The Body Poetic: Exploration through Indian Dance and Poetry".
We explored Rabindranath Tagore's poem "And in wonder and amazement I sing'. Below is a small excerpt of the poetry that participants made:
A Mantra to Renew Your Spirit
Communing with the Universe
Walking in the woods with spring flowers
Why aren’t you here all year?
Remember this moment
Feel the squishy ground meeting your feet
Feel it again
Inhale the fragrance of this walk in the woods
See, feel, and touch a beautiful world
Expanding one moment to eternity."
