Senior poetry club gets creative juices flowing

Karin Johnson, a volunteer at Harris Hill Nursing Facility in Lancaster and a retired school teacher, has been working with the residents to channel their creativity and write collaborative poems, facility staff said.

The poetry club meets once a month and includes reading, writing and listening to poems.

The group focuses on the work of a particular poet to gain inspiration before writing a poem of their own.

The poetry club held a writers celebration that included sharing their poems with fellow residents, family and staff.

The group has written eight poems in the anthology “Seeing Through Wonder.”

The group continues to meet monthly and plans to add poems to the anthology.
