David Whyte Poems: Loaves and Fishes December 26, 2014 • 2 Comments I never truly appreciated the beauty of poetry until quite recently. I think my brain was too distracted to understand the gorgeous simplicity contained in so few words. As my life becomes more and more simplified, I find I am drawn to the magical way a poem can evoke an ocean of feeling and understanding. We live in a world of so much, and yet so little. Our nation struggles with an obesity epidemic, while at the same time cannot deny that millions of its children are hungry every day. We have more bandwidth and connection than ever before, and yet as individuals, the sense of being isolated and alone has never been greater. How can this be? I think this poem expresses what we truly need. Loaves and Fishes This is not the age of information. This is not the age of information. Forget the news, and the radio, and the blurred screen. This is the time of loaves and fishes. People are hungry and one good word is bread for a thousand. by David Whyte from The House of Belonging -db Who is Dianna Bonny? Hi, my name is Dianna Bonny.
