May 2020 Poetry of Nature Walk + Poems

Narnia Woods | Vermont

Poetry explorers from Vermont, Connecticut, Chicago and Australia gathered online to enjoy a beautiful trek through the magical woods of Narnia in Vermont – yes, really, Narnia! Inspired by childhood memories of Narnia and the shapes created by the contrasting play of light and shadow, we created artistic shape poems about our experience.

A WALK TO THE WOODS | Phillip Kloeckner | Chicago, Illinois

A walk to the woods on a sunny,
windy day that brings the
eyes of eight along
on an adventure of
awareness of the
senses: sights, sounds,
songs, smells, aromas,
textures, contrasts,
light, dark, shades of
colors, hues,
shapes, sizes, moving quickly,
and then a guest:
a sentinel, unexpected,
but reassuring, a welcome
presence as
strong and sturdy
as the trees that
watch with her (?) smiling,
sending us on our ways.




























NARNIA | Gabe + Theresa | Burlington, Vermont
White flowers
bouncing tulips
sun poking through the green grass
shadow of the sun casting light on the ground below
prickly pine cones
water giving life to all the roots
giant trees reach to the sky bring Narnia alive
Dark knight standing tall protecting the animals
and puffy cotton balls blow in the wind
