Thank you for visiting my poetry blog.
“Poverello” was a name given to St. Francis of Assisi (“Poverello” means the “little poor man”) – a man who discovered God and explored spirituality, compassion and the natural world. Discovering St. Francis and Franciscan spirituality had a major impact on me.
One of my first self-published collections of poetry developed from reading about Francis’ life in The Little Flowers of St. Francis. I called it The Flowering of The Poverello, and that became the name of this blog.
There are reflections as well as poetry on the blog, but now I post these on other blogs, in particular Godness Writes which links to a Facebook Group called Christian Spirituality Explored.
You may also be interested in my sister blog, called The Flowering of Being Human which you can visit here.
