Celebrating Poetry, Beauty,
& the Sacred Essence of Joy

Together we are more

I wrote this poem a few days after the election, after visiting with friends over a modest dinner of scrambled eggs… I hope it gives you comfort in these turbulent times.

Together We Are More

There are rooms
and corners, still,
where neighbors gather
in the restless pull of oneness,
the resilience of love.
We come together humbled,
astonished, curious, alive,
& looking for the good.
Some are weary,
others overflowing,
and still, there is kindness,
a quiet belonging,
listening, pardon, warmth…
work that must be done.

Let us each bring what we need.

~Ingrid Goff-Maidoff
