Mindful


Dear Spirit to Spirit friend,

To start your day.

"Mindful", by Mary Oliver

Every day

I see or I hear

something

that more or less

kills me

with delight,

that leaves me

like a needle

in the haystack

of light.


It is what I was born for-

to look, to listen,

to lose myself

inside this soft world-

to instruct myself

over and over

in joy,

and acclamation.


Nor am I talking

about the exceptional,

the fearful, the dreadful,

the very extravagant-

but of the ordinary,

the common, the very drab,

the daily presentations.


Oh, good scholar,

I say to myself,

how can you help

but grow wise

with such teachings

as these-

the untrimmable light

of the world,

the ocean's shine,

the prayers that are made

out of grass?



May the Light of the ordinary fill your heart and soul today with joy and delight.


In Gratitude & Love, Joanna
