...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
