Nature's Poetry with Jennifer Spice


Oct 29 2021 • 13 mins

Poet Jennifer Spice invites children and others to take a walk and to talk about nature.

She’s been engaging with children from Crescent Primary School, Stoke-on-Trent, in a series of workshops to “feel a bit of nature, pick up a stone, connect with nature, read some poetry in nature, do some breathing in nature.”

In this podcast episode Jennifer tells how the children respond to new experiences of the natural world, and how they’ve been inspired to write poetry together. She also shares several of her poems.

“Nature, thinking, then writing prose, journaling and poetry, have been my mainstay to self-help therapy, to get well, maintain well, and grow well,” said Jennifer.

Jenn is a wave of infectious energy. She delights in the shape of clouds, the buzzing of insects, the vibrancy of Nature’s palette. She aims to live in each moment, to enjoy each moment, mindfully and fully. Her writing helps her to record the moments that a camera would miss.
