Thank you to Sally Murphy for hosting this week.
I have fallen in love with Joy Harjo’s poetry, and I am so glad that The Academy Of American Poets has featured a few of her poems on Facebook last year. This one is particularly thought provoking as Harjo muses on the centrality of kitchen tables in a home: a place where sensibilities are shaped, minds are moulded, bodies and spirits nourished and fed.
Our home has no kitchen table the way Harjo describes it in this poem. But our dining table does have a central space in our family where we do most things as a family. How about you, fellow Poetry lovers?
