I go to the moon
What is first in the light
What is the dimness
What force against what force
this against that, and not for?
in torment that desires itself.
Light and dark at melting points
SECOND DRAFT OF A FIRST DRAFT POEM
Mo Hurley writes: Only FOUR days left to reserve your space for an AMAZING California Poets in the Schools poetry fest, "Passing the Gift Forward," a full weekend of readings and workshops with something for poets, writers, and teachers—as well as Poetry Out Loud poets and Youth Poets Laureate. The annual CPITS Symposium will be held at IONS Institute high on a bucolic ridgeline near Mt. Burdell, on the Novato-Petaluma (Sono Marin) border on Sept. 14-16. Super economical Saturday Day Passes (including a fabulous lunch): 32 spots left. Join us Saturday for a full day of writing workshops—from creative writing to arts grantwriting/publicity workshops. Or drop by for a reading. Or become the reading. The panorama alone is breathtaking. Walk the labyrinth. Listen to the hawks cry. See cpits.org/events.htm; contac Tina@CPITS.org to reserve a spot. CEU units available.
