from Adrienne Rich
"if you can read and understand this poem
send something back: a burning strand of hair
a still warm,still liquid drop of blood
a shell thickened from being battered year on year, send something back"

This my something back
Thanks for your post, Joan T


Katie, Just when I think you have captured my own feelings so very well and couldn't possibly connect my dots any wiser..along comes today's poem. Well done, fair teacher, indeed you have mastered "the art of staying soft" and we all are blessed to be absorbing the lovely bits of your soul's poetry that you so graciously share. Cynthia

Hi Katie - this is so expressive and heartfelt. I was drawn in by your journal pages in a previous post...my blog is entitled 'What if'...it seems to be a common theme in my life these days.
