Happy Poetry Friday! I hope your week went well. I think mine did, for the most part. We had a beautiful 70° weather on Monday and had a steady high 50’s/ after that. This week also happens to be the final due date of a poetry book I borrowed from my library. I’ve renewed it five times and managed to share it with you just now. How silly of me!

The poem featured in today’s post is taken from Home, a collaborative project by Deepak Chopra, Kabir Seghal, and Paul Avgerinos. As noted on the cover, Home contains poems and songs inspired by American immigrants. It contains a book of poems and a compact disc for music and meditations. Check out a copy when you can!

Poetry Friday round-up is hosted by Irene at Live Your Poem!

  1. Did you get a chance to listen to the CD? What was it like? What were the “meditations” like – are they different from the poems found in the book?

  2. “I am/because you were/and are” – wonderful words about that bond, Fats. Thanks for sharing this. I will find it! Have a wonderful day!

  5. Powerful moving poem–I also renew books from the library many times–then sometimes I have to buy them, Thanks Fats!

  6. Wow, this reminds me of when I was little… if I renewed a book multiple times, my parents would buy that book for me… that was the litmus test! I will certainly check it out. Thank you!

  7. Powerful poem – and an intriguing book, for sure. My library only allows 3 renewals, but I know what it means when I keep hitting that button. I will have to check this out. Thanks for the recommendation.
