Family Is Welcome At CUWP

Jamie Haslam

This weekend, 2013 CUWPers descended upon Daniel’s Summit–nestled in the mountains of Heber–for a writing retreat reunion. Writing fellow, Steve Haslam brought his wife, Jamie, who joined us for our morning writing party. Above is the photograph she took on the drive up to the lodge, and below is the poem she wrote to honor what she saw.

The First
by Jamie Haslam

From the misted grey horizon
ghostly sentinels of the forest swirl into view

Whispers of a colder season of life
delicately interlace through the fading warm memories of yesterday

Their singing of the evergreen days
muted with a cold dusting of reality

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Central Utah Writing Project, we invite you to apply for our next summer institute.
