Your poetry is the liturgy of my life. I took myself on "The Journey" and then read it to every woman student I have ever had. At Advent, I read "Making the House Ready for the Lord" to remind myself that a glorious hilarity is what I am waiting for. At this moment "Lilies" graces my refrigerator door at eye level because I have fought and won, for the moment, the struggle with cancer and I wish to be hummingbird, cattle, and lily until the day I can't rise anymore.
Thank you for the gift of your words and the courage to name your "Thirst" so that I could find mine. Be well.
