When prayer is difficult, try poetry

I have a piece about using poetry as “secular prayer” up at The Mindful Word, which is a gorgeous-looking site on mindfulness, wholistic health, sustainability, and like-subjects. It’s based on an experience I wrote about here in my “Poetry Diary” back in the winter, in  “Rage Against Depression,”   and “Missing Persons.” I was trying to use poetry to help me through the anguish of knowing that a friend of mine was suffering and that there was nothing I could do to help.

Internet poetry publications are now the main places I go to for solace.
