IPM Poetry Partner Meredith Heller.
These poems are posted monthly and shared first with our donors as a thank you for their support. We open January's poem to the public with an invitation for you to join in this support of the Poetic Medicine community by donating through one of the links above.
If a line or phrase resonates with you, we invite you to use it as a starting point to create your own poem.
We welcome you to share your poem with the IPM community here: A Poetry Commons.
