Each month, the YU Observer sends a call to YU students for poetry submissions following a specific theme. This month, the theme was “Sanctuary”, and we are featuring Efrat Malachi’s piece, ‘Sanctuary’.

From tsunamis in your eyes to parades in your heart

It’s all a sanctuary

From cracks in your nails to the silk in your smile

It’s all a sanctuary

From cavities in your courage to pits in your fear

It’s all a sanctuary 

From battles in your walk to the symphonies in your talk

It’s all a sanctuary

From the good to the bad to the ordinary

It’s all a sanctuary

if you make it to be

Do you want to see your writing published? The theme for May’s poetry submissions is “Catharsis”. Send all submissions to theyuobserver@gmail.com by May 10.
