Inspired by Traci Brimhall’s project to read a Dickinson poem a day, I thought I’d do the same with Elizabeth Bishop. However, finding myself incapable of a daily blog post, this project transformed over the years. Now it is a slow, not necessarily polished, meditation on Bishop’s Collected Poems. It is a practice in gentle, intentional engagement with a poem at a time. It’s a thing to do when one doesn’t know what to write.
