Striking a Balance: Words Fall In with guest Lara Niedermeyer

By Melonie Cannon

We are so happy to showcase one of Segullah’s past poetry editors, Lara Niedermeyer, in this month’s podcast. She has a unique outlook and strong voice. In my opinion, the feeling in her poetry can best be described as though one is standing alone in the desert and suddenly the ring of distant church bells can be heard. It’s surprising, haunting, comforting and lonely all at once.

One of her poems that we disuss is titled Inscendent. We thought you would like to read the gorgeous article that inspired it called Enduring an Inscendent Transformation.

Thank you, Lara, for sharing your work with us and thank you to the Words Fall In Podcast Listeners. Please share!!!
