Celebrating Poetry with Troubadour Larry Long and Storyteller Tom Thibodeau

Poetry helps us to remember what we’ve forgotten.  Poetry gives us images which words cannot capture in definition or doctrine.  Poetry gives us comfort in difficult and uncertain times.  Poetry lifts our spirits, captures our hearts and imagination in unsuspecting moments.  Mary Oliver, one of the great American poets, writes, “It doesn’t have to be the blue iris, it could be weeds in a vacant lot, or a few small stones; just pay attention, then patch a few words together and don’t try to make them elaborate, this isn’t a contest but the doorway into thanks, and a silence in which another voice may speak.
