The more leaves are lost,
the more lights we see at night.
In the cold,
the city glimmers through the trees.
~from "Ravine" in Reporting from Night by Kateri Lanthier
There are realities that lie beneath the surface of the seen world that poetry, paintings and music can help us to make sense of. The arts can open up the way to inner healing, becoming conduits of grace. Poetry is an especially vital art form that enables people to understand the truths about themselves and the universe.
