You, Love, are wounded in your cage.
Love and Forgiveness, the title of this body of work, was sponsored by the Fetzer Institute. The essays and poems included here were written by a group of thirteen writers who participated in a three-month online writing workshop project with AWWP mentors trained on the themes.
If there is hell in the other world, I hope he is there and I am sure he is.
They talked and talked and sold me.
Make the love between us stay.
Don’t let it leave, please.
The bottom of our hearts—roots that dig deeply into earth
hold fast, while in the fall, we throw our problems—
autumn leaves of yellow.
I had never met my fiancé until the engagement.
God is not against love.
He loves the one who is in love.
Play on the piano, the keys of my heart—
black, white, red and all the notes
