Annual Poetry as Prayer Day Retreat

Naomi Shihab Nye - "Transcendent Liveliness"

San Antonio poet and editor Jim LaVilla-Havelin, says of Naomi Shihab Nye, “…It is her openness to experience — to the world, the present moment, place, the senses — that feeds her poems. And in her poems — the caring, the openness, her infectious grasp of all there is to take in — joy, injustice, flavor, irony, home, solidarity — shines through.”

Shihab Nye’s work, in the words of one of her mentors, poet William Stafford, combines “transcendent liveliness and sparkle along with warmth and human insight. She is a champion of the literature of encouragement and heart. Reading her work enhances life.”

Join us for this day of exploring together the poetry of Shihab Nye. Her poetry reaches across the globe while simultaneously grounding deep into the particulars of place and human experience.
