The poets are sometimes the only voices we can turn to and trust....

Jennifer said it well. That poem is haunting. I wish it was less terrible. I am thinking of you often.

The nights are awful, yes. Still praying for you - for intentions and in your stead, should you have need.

For me it was Gerard Manley Hopkins, SJ..here.

As the wise Jesuit who walked part of my travails with me said...sometimes you need poems and psalms where it doesn't end in resurrection.

Some of Mary Oliver's poetry in "Thirst" and "Red Bird" may also speak to this time....and, of course, some of the Psalms...
