A Great Need
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?
