One beautiful day in August, ten or so poets traversed into the Sipsey Wilderness with pen in hand. With guidance from ARA’s Poet & Film Fellow Palavi Ahuja, they were inspired to focus on the small and tiny around us, and perhaps write our own lullaby.
Here is a sampling of the poems created that day. Special thank you to Wild Alabama for their inspiration of location and for all they do protecting Alabama’s wild places.
Lullaby for Sipsey by Palavi Ahuja
