Come and share the poets and their poems that have created images and experiences for you that go beyond just words – those “zen-like” moments. A time to celebrate, play and laugh at the joy of a beautiful way with words that have inspired, amazed and connected you.
“Pulling out the chair
Beneath your mind
And watching you fall upon God.
What else is there?
For Hafiz to do
That is any fun in this world!”
And from ‘Tripping Over Joy’:
“The spiritual path is a sublime chess game with God
And the Beloved has just made such a Fantastic Move.”
Hafiz – Sufi poet.
He said that good poetry makes the universe reveal a secret. What are the poems that have delighted and revealed secrets to you?
The wren singing in the hedge “was positively drenched in enthusiasm”. Mary Oliver
I would love you to share some of the memorable poems that have lifted you and carried you through life.
