What We See When We Read

Poetry Reading: Carolyn Brigit Flynn & Leah Stenson

09/03/2014 7:00 pm

Please join us for a reading from these two wonderful poets!

Communion is Carolyn Brigit Flynn's offering of love poems to the earth, addressed in these poems as Beloved. The poems invoke the author’s movement from an urban Catholic childhood into an embodied communion with the sacred presence of the Earth. Inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke’s Book of Hours, each poem uses one of Rilke’s lines as its title and springboard. Communion addresses timeless issues of spiritual awakening, loss and communion, and moves the reader through longing and moments of spiritual aloneness into a vivid connection with the sacred Beloved that is resilient and integrated into the rhythms of daily life.

Portland poet Leah Stenson will be reading from three books of poems. Reverberations from Fukushima, an anthology she co-edited, features contemporary Japanese poetry and essays on the first nuclear disaster of the 21st Century. The Turquoise Bee is an autobiography of love, of individual loves. Fashioned from a sequence of poems, it spans decades and oceans. The poems in Heavenly Body explore the pathos of loss and separation, reveal deeply personal moments in the lives of friends and family, and trace the saga of long-distance love.
