What Poetry Does: Adrienne Rich on Poetry’s Political Power and Its Role in the Immigrant Experience

Today is “Poetry Day” here in New Zealand.  I encourage us all to read our favourite poem; out loud to a friend.  Poetry has a way of capturing reality and engaging us with beauty.   That is important as we build sustainable ways of life.  And poetry is direct contact with our beautiful worlds.

“Poetry can break open locked chambers of possibility, restore numbed zones to feeling, recharge desire.”
