At the corner of fall and winter - on the meaning of home

My Beautiful Stories

12-02-2021 • 9 mins

‘and while she bends down to sit at the corner of fall and winter

her worries settle down with her

as they shake and shake

until the very last brown leaf drops.’ (@komorebi.koyama)

Today’s story comes in the shape of a poem, shared by Jennifer Koyama. Jennifer is a writer and poet who captures the fragility of the human nature in her writing.

DISCUSSION

We discuss the relationships between feelings and nature, and question whether this has dramatically changed during the last year. Are we going to nature with a different intention? Is our communion with nature becoming less unidimensional and more of a coming together, a coming towards each other with deeper understanding  and need?

To listen to the episode, look for My Beautiful Stories in your podcast app. If you’ve enjoyed the episode, please share it with others.

RECOMMENDATION

Our recommendation is Louise Gluck’s The Wild Iris, a series of poems which link feelings and nature in a beautiful way.
