Weekend Do: Poetry Edition
November 29, 2012 § 2 Comments
I can’t help it. I’m immersed in poems. Here are all the books I’ve received in the last month from my poet friends – so much to read!
If you don’t like poetry, then start small. Take this sweet, brief poem by Robert Bly, and consider someone’s hands this weekend.
“Taking the hands of someone you love,
You see they are delicate cages . . .
Tiny birds are singing
In the secluded prairies
And in the deep valleys of the hand.”
These are the hands of people I love:
And remember that your life is your life. Know it while you have it.
