Each month we spend an hour or so reading poetry. There is usually a theme for poetry afternoons; for love we read Pablo Neruda with a resident reading the poem in Spanish first, for spring, poems with beautiful images of flowers and rebirth. For summer, just recently, we read this poem that we all loved. It is always wonderful to look for the small miracles in the day to day. While there are so many things in the world right now that are beyond our control, it is good to be reminded, especially with Walt Whitman’s gift for language, to notice and be grateful for all of life’s miracles.
