Paraclete Poetry is dedicated to the notion that great poems are for everyone and their themes are universal. Poetry allows us to linger with language and explore light and darkness. Great poems permit us to wander, to linger, to grow—in ways that other writing does not. It has been this way since the Bible was written. King David wrote poems about every emotion imaginable, and the prophets wrote in poetic form because they knew they had a truth too deep for prose. So, too, Paraclete Poetry is dedicated to the idea that verse is one of the best ways to explore spiritual meaning, to help all of us find our way home.
