Of a great need
We are all holding hands
Not loving is a letting go.
The terrain around here
– Hafiz of Shiraz
(translated by Daniel Ladinsky)
- This poem speaks to how dangerous situations demand we pull together. Write a poem, beginning “Out of a great need…” that explores what and whom you gain support from.
- Describe the dangerous terrain you find yourself in. What does it look like? What makes it dangerous? How are you navigating it.
- Where are you on the slope of your life? What can you see from here?
