It is a serious thing
Just to be alive
On this fresh morning
In this broken world.
-Mary Oliver

(With thanks to our Hannah, for sending this verse in a text message yesterday.)

(I realized, in a conversation of consequence last week, that poetry is my scripture.)


  1. A wonderful composition! I love the colours, the textures, the shadows and the light! I think I should like poetry to be my scripture too.

  2. Ah, Mary Oliver's words are a balm to the soul.
