Mary Oliver is one of my favourite poets and I try not to miss too many opportunities to share her work. She has such a way of revealing the extra-ordinary in ordinary events. Those events have deeper meaning that sometimes escapes our view when we do not ask questions that allow us to dig deeper.
Originally posted on Dr Bill Wooten:
“After rain after many days without rain,
it stays cool, private and cleansed, under the trees,
and the dampness there, married now to gravity,
falls branch to branch, leaf to leaf, down to the ground
where it will disappear — but not, of course, vanish
except to our eyes. The roots of the oaks will have their share,
and the white threads of the grasses, and the cushion of moss;
a few drops, round as pearls, will enter the mole’s tunnel;
and soon so many small stones, buried for a thousand years,
will feel themselves being touched.”
~ Mary Oliver
Breathe. Al is well. There is not much else to say as we allow each moment to flow into the next realizing the transience of living.
Love becomes us when we truly love. It is not the words and actions, but the embodiment of the words and actions. When we love something or someone, it is easy for others to see. There is a richness that exists in us that is easy to sense.
Becomes is an interesting word. We might simply understand it as love is something we become. Better perhaps is that love is something that we wear well and show well. It becomes us. There is a radiance that exudes from us when we embody love. It is not just a passing fancy. Love is lasting and always becoming.
A beautiful picture and quote. Autumn is a time for harvesting and setting aside. It is a time to be thankful and grateful for the bounties we have been offered.
