into the pink air of early morning

What Gorgeous Thing by Mary Oliver

I do not know what gorgeous thing
the bluebird keeps saying,
his voice easing out of his throat,
beak, body into the pink air
of the early morning. I like it
whatever it is. Sometimes
it seems the only thing in the world
that is without dark thoughts.
Sometimes it seems the only thing
in the world that is without
questions that can’t and probably
never will be answered, the
only thing that is entirely content
with the pink, then clear white
morning and, gratefully, says so.

 

I simply love Mary Oliver. She has a gentle grace filled with love of nature and life. I love when I find a poem of hers that I have never read. This one invites curiosity and a positive, light possibility in being.

Another step forward

Another step forward

I feel it this morning
A magnetic pull
Toward the light
The universe turning me
Ever so gently
So the sun shines
Fully on me
Radiating energy
Awakening my joy
And inviting me:
Take another step forward

The first iteration of this poem came to me last week. It’s still rough – only on the 3rd iteration. Yet, I am inspired to share it with you today.

In my quiet time this morning, I feel the power of nature, of light. From a place of stillness, I feel this pull that shapes me. I see how this unseen energy can shape my mindset and lift me above any challenges I face.

May you feel the light and the call of nature to awaken to what’s possible today.
