Why We Need Poetry

“Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord”

Ephesians 5:19

Like a soft breeze 
a floating butterfly 
Gentle unexpected rain, laugh, cry
In a rigid world, darts are thrown
we need a break

We are His poem (Greek)

Ephesians 2:10

My friend, Bob, says, ‘music let’s us express ourselves on a level we’re unable to verbally.’

‘It is the heart which experiences God, and not reason.’

Pascal (God’s Love, 1992, Ariel Books)

‘I’m not a machine,’ I declared to my sister as to why I take a sabbath. Besides all the poetry and songs in the Bible, this could be one’s life work.
