Poetry is Also Medicine

April is Poetry Month and so, for the next few weeks I’ll be posting some poems about cancer and caregiving and relationships. I hope you’ll make them part of your daily meditation and that you will share them with your friends and family…and other caregivers.

Here is a great “Why” for reading poetry:

“Let us remember…that in the end we go to poetry for one reason, so that we might more fully inhabit our lives and the world in which we live them, and that if we more fully inhabit these things, we might be less apt to destroy both.”
