Lately, I’ve been writing my posts on the week I publish them. But this week I was on Bowen Island co-facilitating the Living from the Heart course, so I knew I needed a stand-in. I found one, or should I say, she found me. A month ago a friend recited this poem by Naomi Shihab Nye, and I’ve been savouring it and sharing it with friends ever since. Enjoy.
Naomi Shihab Nye is a poet, songwriter, and novelist. She was born to a Palestinian father and an American mother. Although she calls herself a “wandering poet”, she refers to San Antonio as her home. Her books include 19 Varieties of Gazelle, A Maze Me: Poems for Girls, and Transfer. Her most recent book is Voices in the Air: Poems for Listeners Nye was the recipient of the 2014 NSK Neustadt Prize for Children’s Literature
What love mischief are you and God doing to care for the world?
Let me know and I will include it in an upcoming post.
