Our featured guest today is Chelan Harkin, Ecstatic Poet


The worst thing we ever did

was put God in the sky out of reach pulling the divinity from the leaf, sifting out the holy from our bones, insisting God isn’t bursting dazzlement through everything we’ve made a hard commitment to see as ordinary, stripping the sacred from everywhere to put in a cloud man elsewhere, prying closeness from your heart. The worst thing we ever did was take the dance and the song out of prayer made it sit up straight and cross its legs removed it of rejoicing wiped clean its hip sway, its questions, its ecstatic yowl, its tears. The worst thing we ever did is pretend God isn’t the easiest thing in this Universe available to every soul in every breath. — We are ecstatic to share with you today, Chelan Harkin, our featured guest on Caravan of the Heart. THIS poem was our gateway into her ecstatic poetry and sublime spirit Experience our exhilarating, effervescent, and ebullient conversation with Chelan on our new podcast, Caravan of the Heart!
