Calling All Poets to Tapestry

Tapestry, a new section of OHF Weekly devoted to poetry, celebrates both our similarities and differences, but most of all our shared humanity.

Volume 3 Number 14A

In This Issue: “The Equal People 2021 Wrap-Up,” 11 poems from the week, a legacy article by William Spivey, “A Fond Farewell to a Member of Our Human Family,” and something for your upcoming week

Arise

Amorphous are the lines of humanity, the core remains constant. Although the past was mired in ignorance, we now have access to the knowledge that offers us a shared humanity and its joys

A Nation Bruised

All too often, our country leaves us black and blue. But no matter the injury, we have to keep fighting and love can deliver a knockout punch if we simply give it the chance

Daring to Hope

Holding on from here to there; between light and dark days…is hope enough or should we even sing that hymn when our days are too often exhausting, broken and breathless?

Only When

What will it take for people see the injustice in our “justice” system? Must a person experience something to understand how wrong it is? Will that ever happen?

Growing Hope

Hope is a delicate seed that must be nourished by the entire community to flourish; but what happens when it is not? And can we afford to let it keep withering across America?

Unfinished

Who am I? Why do you only see outlines—why can’t you see more of me? You get to pick and choose what little you wish to see, but the pain and misperceptions hurt all of me
