Exploring Human Experience through Poetry: Security

Is “security” an objective or subjective characteristic of being? Surely both. But as security issues have pervaded our society in the past decade, seldom do we contemplate a deeper understanding of what provides us with a true sense of security. This month we will try to do just that by looking to the poets for expressions of and desires for security. For those with the inclination, go explore your favorite poetry sources this month to look for a poem or two that speaks to our need and longing for security.

If you find a poem or two to share, bring along some copies to distribute for ease of reading (8-10 should do). Or just come to participate in the discussion with others. Facilitated by Audrey Kingstrom, Community Coordinator for the Humanists of MN.

      Park in front of the building on Mount Curve Ave. There is usually plenty of room on a Friday evening.
