"Poetry calls us to pause. There is so much we overlook, while the abundance
around us continues to shimmer, on its own."
- Naomi Shihab Nye
If spiritual direction is an endeavor of slowing down and paying attention, poetry can help to walk us into this kind of space. I hope in this collection of poems you might find something that helps you to slow down; some words that gently invite you to be in the place that you actually are - and to find you are not alone there.
