This April we are filling the EasternPennPoints blog with art and poetry in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
The Hiding Place
by Jennifer Raudenbush
Cloistered within my secret room of leaves
the children come:
to soak up sacred space
to touch the holy
They perch on gnarled branches
Desires and hopes
nesting in my leaves;
the only sound the swishing of the breeze,
murmurs of a thousand whispered prayers.
When not writing picture books, middle grade, and poetry, Jennifer Raudenbush is likely reading, spending time in nature, or adventuring with family.
