For a limited time, we have a power of poetry. The line make “hope & history rhyme” was written by the Irish poet Seamus Heaney. It has been shared by many, but it didn’t catch my attention until Joe Biden used it in his convention speech at the DNC. In this line I found a way forward, a way where we can both hold the truth of our history in mind & have hope for a better future. A way forward, where compassion and kindness prevail. For me, this is the power of poetry. It serves to remind us – we are human. Thanks to Danno Design for bringing this line to life and helping me share it with others.
