Poetry for Peace ~ Poesía por la paz

 

Poets around the world have defined PEACE in different ways using various literary images. It can mean world peace, peace between friends, family, or inner peace. Whichever meaning of peace you're looking for, LuzDelMes project is sharing a moment to reflect on the meaning of PEACE throughout POETRY. Join us the last Saturday of each month at 10:00 a.m. ET via Zoom & Instagram.

The Objective: Reach inner peace throughout poetry.

During the month of January, we read poems by Rabindranath Tagore. On February, Black History Month, I chose Maya Angelou. During March, I quoted a poem by Emily Dickinson "I Many Times Thought Peace Had Come," and on April exploring the Japanese philosophy and idiom proverb from the 1400,s  "Kacho-Fuugetsu" 花鳥風月, May the poetry of Pablo Neruda (Chilean Poet) & Thomas Merton's reflections, June "The Peace-Pipe" by Henry Wadswoth Longfellow, 1855 and July "Searching for Peace/Giving Peace" by LuzDelmes.
