Selected Poems by Megan McKenna
(Why she writes – a poem by Megan)I write to remake the world. I write to make the world right. I write to get beyond survival to life. I write for the right to life for all, beginning with earth and creatures and all things that begin in seed and seek to sprout and change form, mature, grow old gracefully, and die well, finishing their stories themselves. I write to keep breathing, walking, relating, praying. I write to worship. I write to keep the Word enfleshed, to keep incarnation in history, to make the Word come true. I write to make love easily understandable, tangible, simply acknowledged. I write to make love gratefully to the One who spoke once in human flesh and whispered “you are a letter that gives heart to my soul – write me.” To order Megan’s book of poems click here and scroll down to “Dancing With Angels”. __________________________________________________________
