Product Description
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 Afterword 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.
