Joanna Biggar Shares Two Poems that Speak to Now
These poems by Bertalicia Peralta and A.E. Stallings "both shine light on troubling places in this aching world."
Joanna Biggar shares two poems she came upon recently that speak to the times. The first, by Panamanian poet Bertalicia Peralta "illuminates the power of love in a powerful woman." The second, by A. E. Stallings, "After a Greek Proverb," "reminds us of the harrowing plight of millions of refugees and their forced marches from home."
This is the Biggar's first blog post following the death of the beloved women's liberation leader Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
