Dickinson Poetry Series Features Michael Farmer

Michael Farmer of Baileys Harbor will be the featured poet in the UU Fellowship Dickinson Poetry Series on Wednesday, March 9 at 7 pm. His reading will conclude the 2010-2011 Emily Dickinson Poetry Series at the UU Fellowship. An open mic will follow Farmer’s reading.

Farmer’s writing is characterized by and noted for an American style of haiku – short, but very penetrating. Here is an example:

“Perennial crop / The garden fares far too well / White marble crosses…”

The reading will feature haikus, as well as poems influenced by Farmer’s interest in the Native American flute.

The Dickinson Poetry Series is held the second Wednesday each month, offering an opportunity for both experienced and new poets to share their works. The series is free and open to the public.

The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Highway 42 in Ephraim. For more information visit
