To believe is to believe you have been torn
from the abyss, yet stand waveringly on its rim.
–Christian Wiman, “One Time” from Every Riven Thing
Lately I have been drawn to writing poems that deal with faith . . . and doubt. So, it was with deep pleasure and compassion that I listened to this Bill Moyers’ interview with Christian Wiman, poet and editor of Poetry Magazine. Mr. Wiman speaks profoundly about faith, doubt, pain, death, and poetry, and I cannot recommend this interview enough. Take a listen.
