This month’s featured poet is Carl Sennhenn! A portion of this time is devoted to open mic.

Former Oklahoma Poet Laureate (2001 – 2003), Carl Sennhenn is a semi-retired professor of English, Humanities, and Creative Writing at Rose State College, having retired in 2008 after a tenure of 30 years there. Two of his collections of poetry, NOCTURNES, AND SOMETIMES EVEN I and TRAVELS THROUGH ENCHANTED WOODS, were honored with the Oklahoma Center for the Book prize in poetry, in 2006 and 2013, respectively. He is also the author of TRESPASSING: SONGS OF LOVE, COALS OF KINDNESS and a forthcoming collection, OF METAPHOR AND MEMORY. In retirement, Sennhenn has returned to Rose to monitor a writing lab, take drawing classes, and teach creative writing to senior adults. His spare time he devotes to reading, writing, and traveling, most often to Ireland, where he has given poetry readings.

Nature Forgiving

for years I have longed
to observe Nature
be a faithful lover
discover her in every
season all hours of her days
perhaps share in mystery
I have failed in devotion
excused failure after all
I am a child of city streets
bus routes boulevards
and alleys too
still Nature smiles
upon me kindly in summer
with Lilies of the Valley
Chrysanthemums in the fall
and cardinals any hour of day
sing to me of promises
of absolution
