Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— 
I took the one less traveled by, 
And that has made all the difference.

(Robert Frost)

Like a Carnivorous Flower

Letting Go..

 

 

to live in this world you must be able to do three things

to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it;

and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go”

― Mary Oliver, New and Selected Poems, Vol. 1

When Loneliness Comes Stalking..

 

"When loneliness comes stalking, go into the fields,
consider the orderliness of the world.
Notice something you have never noticed before,
like the tambourine sound of the snow-cricket
whose pale green body is no longer than your thumb.

Stare hard at the hummingbird, in the summer rain,
shaking the water-sparks from its wings.

Let grief be your sister, she will whether or no.
Rise up from the stump of sorrow, and be green also,
    like the diligent leaves.

A lifetime isn't long enough for the beauty of this world
and the responsibilities of your life.

Scatter your flowers over the graves, and walk away.
Be good-natured and untidy in your exuberance.

In the glare of your mind, be modest.
And beholden to what is tactile, and thrilling."

~ Mary Oliver,
