NPM Spring Cleaning Day 21, Nature Poetry


This webinar by Aimee Nezhukumatathil has been open on my desktop for nearly a year. It was recorded in May 2020, and it's full of ideas for how to write about nature when you're stuck at home in quarantine. But Aimee's prompts and book recommendations would be wonderful at any time. She did the broadcast for the North American Association for Environmental Education. 
This seems to go well with an article from December 2019 that's been open on my desktop for a while, too. It's about nature as a cure for gloom and depression. It works for me, better than almost anything else! 

This is the ninth year of the Progressive Poem! See the schedule below to find where to go for today's line and to see who's participating this year.
Tomorrow I add my line!

I'm in the midst of some reviewing, Ruth, so now I will bookmark your links. I did a lot of nature writing with my students in a big study of those who did write beautiful books. Thanks for this link & the other, too. I'll look for your line(s) tomorrow!
