Product Description
New for National Poetry Month

Ellen Porter, OSB


“Living from the observation point of the soul/it was her poetry/that broke her silence/in such a way that what she did not say aloud when she lived/will outlive her for years,/will echo on after her….” from the Afterward by Joan Chittister

“I am Like a Kite” (after Hafiz)

I am like a kite in the hands of God.

She runs with me holding the string and blowing Her sweet breath into my body like bellows to fire.

I soar in the dappled sky blue laughing my utter delight

and wonder what will become of me if the Beloved gets tired and runs out of breath



Ellen Porter was a member of the Benedictine Sisters of Erie. Her previous book of poetry, A Hermit Holds My Heart, was published by Benetvision.
