The Poetry of Grace IV: Contemplative Experience Part 2

This week we first turned our attention to Judith Beveridge’s wonderful poem “Flying Foxes, Wingham Brush”. In this poem she reveals her capacity to enter into the lives of these amazing creatures, giving them her full attention, drawing us in to the experience of their wondrous beings! Enjoy this audio lecture which moves at the end towards “The Wonguir-Mandjikai Song Cycle of the Moon Bone”:

 

Here also are two more creative offerings from the group. Enjoy!

First from Grahame Ellis who is “continuing struggle to respond to Michael’s quote”: What elements in the creative use of language enable the mind to overleap its earthly bounds ? Click Here for Grahame’s offering:

Now from artist Peter Solway:

Click here for Peter’s  poem which reflects beautifully on the experience of immersing ourselves in poetry- his image above is, I feel, a reflection of what can be found in some corners of the CBD!
