NPM 4-19: Poem of the One World

Today I'm sharing a bit of Mary Oliver.

Poem of the One World

This morning
the beautiful white heron
was floating along above the water

and then into the sky of this
the one world

we all belong to

where everything

sooner or later

is a part of everything else

which thought made me feel

for a little while
quite beautiful myself.

Happy Thursday all.

  1. Aw, that Mary. I do love how she puts things, considering herself both a part of, and apart from all that she observes. It's a fine line we're always straddling, and she articulates it beautifully.
