A Word or Two

A poem by Mary Oliver – “I Want to Write Something so Simply”

I want to write something
so simply
about love
about pain
that even
as you are reading
you feel it
and as you read
you keep feeling it
and though it be my story
it will be common,
though it be singular
it will be known to you
so that by the end
you think —
no, you will realize–
that it was all the while
yourself arranging the words,
that it was all the time
words that you yourself,
out of your own heart
had been saying.


 Posting later today.

wishing His Grace and His Mercy for the morning,
