10 A.M.: Sunday Service on Mother's Day
1310 Adams Street
Saint Helena, CA 94574
Mother's Day at Church was presented partly by poets! It was an honor to see my poem, "Dear Mama," in the company of poems by Langston Hughes, Mary Oliver and Billy Collins. To live long enough to see how one's poems get integrated in "everyday" life is a blessing. It was also a delight to be able to read a poem for Mom.
You can see "Dear Mama" in my Locofo chap, IMMIGRANT: Hay(na)ku & Other Poems in a New Land. But here are photos from the service (click on images to enlarge):
