Lotus Fertility Poetry

...Poetry is a language that can bridge the gap between heart and intellect.  Poetry is non-
linear logic, empirical voice, and intuitive insight.  When we find, like the Buddha
concluded, that there is a point where there is nothing to say,
reading soul poetry
nurtures the field of consciousness of the heart

In this selection of poems are resources for contemplation, healing, and blessing rituals.
