Such aching beauty in the offerings at this week's Poetry Party. Have you stopped by yet? Pour a cup of tea and then linger with the amazing poems gathered there. Then write your own response to the theme or image and share it with the Abbey community. If you share it before Sunday, you could win a space in my upcoming online art retreat for the season of Lent – Soul of a Pilgrim (February 22-April 7, 2012).
