Poetry Pause

Posted by Daniela Elza on Sep 27 2018

Fall is well under way, and a string of sunny days has brought lots of smiles to our faces. I have read about trees having a heartbeat (as if we could not intuit that), but scientists now are making it their business to document. I have read about plants emitting sounds, and communicating with each other and perhaps with us, if we care to listen. All things we kind of know on a low hum level, but now that the scientist are documenting it with sensitive enough technologies we can believe it too. I knew this before scientists discovered it. But how cool that they have. I hope nature is patient enough for us to discover how to be better with her.

I also heard that two of my poems have been selected to participate in Poetry Pause (an initiative of the League of Canadian Poets), which is akin to the A-Poem-a-Day that some are familiar with. My poems suddenly leaves (forthcoming in my next book), and the weight of dew (from the weight of dew, Mother Tongue Publishing, 2012) will be take part in 2019 Poetry Prose. If you subscribe and receive Poetry Pause, do let me know when you run into them sauntering through your mail box and your day.
