A FloodLight Feature - Ellen Bass - Poet

Ellen Bass

For me poetry is prayer. It is a way to pay attention, to be fully present in the experience of my life, moment by moment. It’s a way to express both my grief and my gratitude. Few of us are able to see the sacred in ordinary life on a regular basis. In the meantime, we do have moments when we’re able to see through to that union, and that’s poetry.
