  1. Such a great idea! Little gifts that connect. I want to do it too!

    I’m so enjoying your posts this summer, Alison. I don’t often comment, but each one is a gem. (Loving “Shadow Baby”, too). Thank you!


  2. The next thing I’m going to do is copy down that poem. I can’t visit your poetry hut, but I want to take this one as my long-distance scroll. It parallels a decision I made maybe three years ago, and keep making, and I want to read these words daily. Thank you, Alison!


  3. Thanks, Denise. I so appreciate your kind words. Make a poetry hut! It’d be so cool if they spread throughout the land.

    Karen, it’s one of my favorite poems, too. The only word in the translation that bugs me is “cops,” and I always wonder what the original (in Persian) sounded like.



  4. Goodmorning Alison-Waking up on Saturday and finding this post: What a great way to start the day. My lovely connecting friend you are the best.

  5. Every week you give me a remarkable gift and I send loving thoughts your way. I often share the week’s poem with others. And every time I need a poem to send to a friend or other loved one whom I feel could use a lift or an “ah-ha” moment or another way of seeing the world, I go to the poems you’ve sent–I have them all–so, as I am about to give, I have the delight of receiving all over again. I admire you so much. Thank you.
    Love, Shaye
