@ellopoetry ---Poetry Friday: The found poem. 7/25/15
Excerpts from John O’Donohue’s “Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom”
“The face is a threshold where a world looks out
and a world looks in upon itself.
True listening brings us in touch even with that which is unsaid and unsayable.
Poets are people who become utterly dedicated to the threshold
where silence and language meet”
Reading the prompt I knew immediately where I would take it from…looking for which pieces I’d quote, I was reminded how much of this book touched my soul, because O’Donohue’s prose feels like poetry.
