wetness & power
To feel the richness of beauty
is to open your heart,
like turning a spigot full on,
where wetness and power gush over you
and fill the space all around you.
This little poem was inspired one morning by reading Mary Oliver’s Swan, in Swan: Poems & Pose Poems (2010). How do you describe the experience of beauty? There is something heart-connecting about it, something all-consuming. Regardless of the words, it’s a wonderful thing.
May you find yourself delighting in beauty and opening your heart wide.
