Thank you to everyone who joined us for this session!
For this session we read a poem Stars by Marjorie Pickthall, and took a close look at a James Webb image Cosmic Cliffs, posted below.
Our prompt was: “Write about looking up.”
More details will be posted on this session, so check back again!

Stars by Marjorie Pickthall Now in the West the slender moon lies low, And now Orion glimmers through the trees, Clearing the earth with even pace and slow, And now the stately-moving Pleiades, In that soft infinite darkness overhead Hang jewel-wise upon a silver thread. And all the lonelier stars that have their place, Calm lamps within the distant southern sky, And planet-dust upon the edge of space, Look down upon the fretful world, and I Look up to outer vastness unafraid And see the stars which sang when earth was made.
