What Makes Relationships Thrive
Found poetry for April 8, 2022 National Poetry Month Poetry Challenge
In “What Makes Relationships Thrive” Shankar Vedantam of the Hidden Brain podcast discusses relationships. “Everyone wants to be loved and appreciated. But psychologist Harry Reis says there’s another ingredient to successful relationships that’s every bit as important as love.”
Here is a black out poem found within the words of the podcast consisting of two haikus (5–7–5 syllables per line).
