Mardi Gras Poetry

February 13, 2010

I’m a day late grabbing this Poetry Friday from Women’s Voices For Change. But still early for Mardi Gras. Lisa Russ Spaar writes about Mardi Gras in a way that makes me wish I could see all the floats and parades in New Orleans- I’ve never been to the city. But the poem also makes me feel like I’m there. Here’s the intro. Read the rest at Women’s Voices For Change.

When we sat down to close our wonderful winter series with Poet-in-Residence Lisa Russ Spaar, the theme of the poem below felt a particular serendipity: today is the official kickoff of Mardi Gras (at right, a photo by Rusty Costanza of last year’s kickoff in New Orleans).
