The Communion of Poetry

poetry reading
Poetry is for me Eucharistic. You take someone else’s suffering into your body, their passion comes into your body, and in doing that you commune, you take communion, you make a community with others.
Mary Karr

Quote: Love & Suffering

Leonid Pasternak - The Passion of creation

“By doing anything that you fundamentally love to do, you are going to suffer for it too; it is going to be painful at times. Love is like that – it is not just a wonderful thing, it is demanding.”
Graham Swift
