Seeing Through the Eyes of the Poet the Compassion that Connects Us All with Naomi Shihab Nye

Despite our differences in faith, politics, race, and sexual orientation, there is a deep inner wisdom that invites each of us to go beneath our surface differences. In that sacred space, we find the compassion that can connect us all.

Poetry invites us into this awareness and inner knowing.

Poetic wisdom sharing opens us to new ways of seeing, connecting, and being with those of different faith traditions, beliefs, and lifestyles. Choose your ways to engage with Naomi Shihab Nye and the wisdom of poetry:

“Poetry calls us to pause. There is so much we overlook, while the abundance around us continues to shimmer, on its own.” —Naomi Shihab Nye
