Truths

​Day 23- Write a seven line poem that begins with “it’s true that fresh air is good for the body” (from Frank O’Hara’s poem “Ave Maria”) and ends with “this is our body” (from Gary Snyder’s “The Bath”).

 
it’s true that fresh air is good for the body, and

that love is good for the soul.

it’s true that pain helps us grow, while

compassion helps us heal.

it’s true that we are individuals,

but also that we are the universe

(this is our body).
