Annual Poems Service

Poetry (from the Greed word, poiesis, ‘making’) is a form of expression that uses aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of language to present multiple layers of meaning. Creatively using techniques suggesting contrast, irony, metaphor, allusion, myth and humor provide a conversation between surface-level and higher order meaning. The ability to simultaneously reflect on a wide variety of perspectives gives a poem depth, insight and power. Mission Peak has two Poems Groups that have met regularly for many years. Members of those groups will share the poems that they personally turn to as cornerstones for what it means to understand the world.
