“Poetry is a life-cherishing force. For poems are not words, after all, but fires for the cold, ropes let down to the lost, something as necessary as bread in the pockets of the hungry.” ~ Mary Oliver, A Poetry Handbook

A good poem is a work of art. Yet certain poems are more than art. Because of what they say or how they say it, these poems have the potential to lift our souls to God with the power of their transcendent images and capacity to put words to our own spiritual journeys. They become prayer for us. Come for a morning as we explore through the lens of faith the praise, adoration, and awe embedded in the works of six poets. Praying with these poets and their work can be our own love letter to God.
