Day 5 – poetry through lent

If you haven’t read the introduction to this practice on our webpage, we encourage you to first read more about it here.

View the whole collection here.

Today’s word for writing is “flesh.

On pathways to collective flourishing, what is the place of flesh?
What harmful ideas have you internalized about your own flesh?
What is the radical potential of claiming we can only perceive divinity in and through flesh?
In what ways does fearing and demonizing flesh serve dominant powers?
Whose flesh needs love, attention, tenderness, and care in these days?
What can be done to heal the perceived dichotomy between spirit and flesh?

Reflect. Meditate. Pay attention. Feel.
Then, write three lines of poetry.

May it be a prayer, a confession, an observation, a longing, a release, or a sensation – whatever is needing your tending today.

Collective contributions will remain open until tomorrow morning. Come back to view previous days contributions anytime here.
