Oh . . . you are going to LOVE Mary Oliver! Who doesn't, really? She uses a lot of nature imagery (Wendell Berry is good for that, too). To start, however, I would highly suggest doing an internet search for her poem "The Journey" right now. Do not wait! Do it now!!! Enjoy . . .

love from the Midwest,
steph

Steph, Just googled Mary Oliver's poem The Journey. Loved it!! Will be reading more of her work as soon as possible. Seems to be something we can all relate to. Thanks for the recommendation!
Love,
Joanne

Default Steph,

I googled "The Journey" and found a site with more of Mary Oliver's work and poems by Rumi and others. It is a small gem. It is easy to find so I won't post a link, but thanks for introducing me to MO. She is a Pulitzer Prize winner. I should have known about her already. Thanks for correcting this oversight. Love, C.

Happened upon the following Mary Oliver poem before meditation this morning. It reminded me of the song that we are all likely familiar with now that introduces each IE Radio show, which is certainly celebratory. The following Oliver poem is not only celebratory, but also pensive and contemplative of change in each and every moment of this precious transitory life:
----
"Last Days" by Mary Oliver


Things are changing, things are starting to Spin, snap, fly off into

the blue sleeve of the long afternoon. Oh and ooh

come whistling out of the perished mouth

of the grass, as things boil back

into substance and hue, As everything

forgetting its own enchantment, whispers

I too love oblivion, why not, it is full

of second chances. NOW,

hiss the bright curls of the leaves. NOW!

booms the muscle of the wind."

---

Namaste from the Midwest,

Stephanie
