Poetry Thursday and Answered Questions

Before I get to a poem for today, I just wanted to mention that several of the people who volunteered to be interviewed by me last week have now posted their responses to the questions I asked, and there’s some wonderful stuff there! If you have some time, check out the interview posts by Amy, Nic, Darlene, Mim, Tammy, and Kiki.

Maybe it’s because of reading the thoughts of such strong and wonderful women that I want to share this poem today.

The Courage of Women

I think of the courage of women,
how they endure,
how they walk for miles to carry back water,
silence in their pain, apportion
what’s left of the rice.
Keepers of eggs without shells,
they know how fragile the days are,
how hope can spill onto the ground.

~~~Jane Glazer

    Is that a headstone or am I the only one reading “son” on that rock?

    Beautiful poem. I LOVE your interview questions. If I had known you were such a good interviewer, I would have said you could interview me. :)

    I answered Amy privately, but in case anyone else wondered and reads these comments, that’s a really ooooold Mason jar in the pic. It’d been buried and we uncovered it in a garden bed.

    Glad y’all enjoyed the poem! I totally forgot to link to Poetry Thursday in this post OR to post my link there. Ooooops. :-)

    Vanessa and Laura, I’m sure I’ll do the Interview Game again someday. It was too fun not to! So maybe y’all could volunteer to be interviewed then.
