I love poetry! Poetry has been a constant companion throughout my journey. I turn to it when I am sad or in celebration, in need of companionship, inspiration or anchoring to something true. For me poetry is like spiritual food. When I am hungry for guidance and in need of lifting my eyes from the narrows of doubt and fear, poetry is there. The kind of reverence for the moment, and all of life, that so many poets embody has been an antidote to life's challenges and change. Here are some of my favorite poets:
David Whyte Mary Oliver Hafiz John O’Donahue Rumi Marge Piercy Pema Chodron Morgan Farley D.H. Lawrence Antonio Machado
