"Anyone who says,“Here’s my address, write me a poem,” deserves something in reply. So I’ll tell you a secret instead: poems hide. In the bottoms of our shoes, they are sleeping. They are the shadows drifting across our ceilings the moment before we wake up. What we have to do is live in a way that lets us find them." -Naomi Shihab Nye

May we dance and laugh and breathe and cry and love in ways that lead us to poetry.
