...a walk with Mary Oliver



Words today by poet Mary Oliver
good ones

"It doesn’t have to be the blue iris,


it could be weeds in a vacant lot,


or a few small stones...



just pay attention,


then patch a few words together and don’t try to make them elaborate,
this isn’t a contest but the doorway into thanks,


and a silence in which another voice may speak.”


NOTE: My days are always better when I do this
