Water is Life: The Poetry of Summer

June 25, 2017

Janis Cheney and Janelle Masters will share a sampling of poetry in praise, celebration and reflection of the summer season.  Janis, a member of this congregation for 35 years, is grateful beyond words for the unconditional friendship, care, and support of our incredible community (which also helped make her and Stephen Crane better parents of daughters Barbara and Johanna). Janelle Masters is a long-time "drop-in" member of the congregation: now you see her, now you don't. She has recently crossed the Great Divide from a free verse poet to formalism, now calling her former technique "vacuous verse that dwells in an inchoate universe." She thinks that line is funny, but no one else seems to. *This is part of our Water Is Life series.
