The Poetry Studio

A Collection of Poems by Kathy Roy

A Collection of Poems

Registration is open!

Earlier this year, I was having a conversation with someone and they said to me, “You must have written enough poems to create a book by now.”

Their comment sparked the idea that I didn’t want to create a poetry book.  What I wanted was to create a poetry experience.  I wanted people to be able to hear the poems spoken aloud and I wanted each poem to be a beautiful poster with graphics or images that conveyed the essence of the poem.  I wanted to engage the senses in a way that brings the poems to life.

My dream while gathering together this original collection of poems for the Poetry Studio has been that this experience might invite you into a moment of:

  • Reflection
  • Prayer
  • Meditation
  • Or Journaling.

I invite you to join me in the soul-nourishing space of The Poetry Studio.


A Moment to Savour

I once heard it said that a poem is born when the heart is so full that it spills over with joy, reverence, love, or lament.  The book of Psalms is filled with such outpourings, as are the writings of Rumi and Mary Oliver.

Poetry is a language of the soul seeking to express that strange mingling of longing and reverence for the Life within and around us.

Poetry invites us to slow down and sip from the nectars of Life.

The Poetry Studio Includes…

An audio recording of each poem for you to listen to.

A beautiful PDF file of each poem for you to download, save, print or share.

An introduction section offering suggestions for using poetry as part of your spiritual practice.

A bonus section offering Poetry Prompts that make it easy to begin creating your own poems.

An Appendix offering some poetry resources.

A growing collection of poems.  As I write new poems, they will be added to The Poetry Studio.
