Oracle in the Trees

O, Miami is hosting their annual festival in April!  The wide ranging events bring poetry to every corner of Miami, often in unique and unexpected ways. My contribution is a sensory forest walk designed to uncover secrets in both written and natural poetry! It will take place Saturday, April 21 at 10:00 AM.

Bibliomancy is the art of fortune telling practiced by interpreting randomly chosen passages from sacred texts. We’ll allow the fates to guide us while taking a leisurely stroll in the pine rocklands, an endangered ecosystem that is unique to south Florida.

Together we’ll explore the forest ecology while engaging in a series of sensory experiences focusing on relaxation, reflection, and the poetry of Hafez, a 14th century Persian mystic.
