Welcome To The Poetry Repair Shop
With Dale Biron
Poems are repair shops, poets the repairwomen, and men. Of course, poets are always working to heal themselves. When skillful, they also support the healing of readers and listeners. Why are the repairs needed? Because, at times, we overlook or deny critical parts of life. If we reject pain and absurdity, we turn brittle and bitter. Refuse beauty and joy; we become barren and sad. The healing answer is wholeness, embracing it all: the pain and the joy. Spend an afternoon with poetry that celebrates and specializes in just such help and healing. Poems that say, “yes" to life's everything.
Growing up in the Piedmont region of North Carolina, under the careful watch of a New England bred Father who read voraciously, and a Southern born Mother who loved poetry, literature and Latin, Dale’s love for language was predestined. He is former Poetry Editor for A Network for Grateful Living and served on the Board of Directors of the Marin Poetry Center.
