Poetry From the On Being Gathering — Naomi Shihab Nye

A morning of poetry with Naomi Shihab Nye from the second day of our On Being Gathering.

This year, we were thrilled to host our very first On Being Gathering — a four-day coming-together of the On Being community for reflection, conversation, and companionship — at the 1440 Multiversity in the redwoods of Scotts Valley, California. We greeted each day with verse from some of our most beloved poets — and now we’d like to share these delightful moments with all of you. Here is how Naomi Shihab Nye began our Saturday morning.

Naomi Shihab Nye is a visiting poet all over the world and a professor of creative writing at Texas State University. Her books include "19 Varieties of Gazelle," "A Maze Me: Poems for Girls," and "Transfer." Her most recent book is "Voices in the Air: Poems for Listeners."
