Have you ever wanted to try writing poetry?

This is Heart of Wisdom Zen Temple's fourth annual interactive poetry blog.

Thirty days of daily poetry writing in a supportive and compassionate on-line teaching platform. It will include weekly writing prompts, reflections on poetry, art, practice, work, and life, and feature guest artists. Everyone is welcome to participate. No experience necessary. If you have never written a poem before, this is the place to start! For inspiration and to create community, we will be posting our poetry online for all participants in the event to read.

Curious? Visit the site to read others’ poems and to be inspired to write your own.
