Fiona Sze-Lorrain adds her voice to “Poetry is like bread”

Fiona Sze-Lorrain takes part in the collaborative Ghazal project, "Poetry Is Like Bread."

"The 'Poetry Is Like Bread' Ghazal is a collaborative poem created by a world of poets to nourish us all through the Pandemic and to envision the world After. We take our inspiration from Pablo Neruda: “On our earth, before writing was invented, before the printing press was invented, poetry flourished. That is why we know that poetry is like bread, it should be shared by all, by scholars and by peasants, by all our vast , incredible, extraordinary family of humanity.” This collaborative poem was created with the idea that each poet’s unique voice would join together as one, and that the result would be shared by all. There is no poetic form better suited to do this than the Ghazal."
