Poetry Friday: “A Great Need” by Hafiz

I’ve been reading The Gift little by little over the past two months. I picked it up at a used bookstore. I don’t typically fold down page corners, but have folded down so many in this book to remind myself of what struck me, I’m almost embarrassed. This poem reminded me of kind souls who have encouraged me to keep writing, blogging, and thinking. Thank you.

The Poetry Friday party is being held at Carol’s place, Beyond LiteracyLink.

  2. It’s so true. I’m grateful for my writing friends who hold my hand through whatever terrain lies ahead.

  3. Such a beautiful way to think! We are holding hands across this cyberspace keeping each other aloft.

  4. Keri, as a group of kindred souls, it is good to realize that we all gather energy and support from each other. Thank you for the great quote.

  5. Yes, let’s keep holding on to each other because, yes, the terrain is quite dangerous these days.
