This week's Sunday Scribblings prompt, Poetry, is so timely for me. One of the things I wanted to do with my week away was to read some poetry, and I have read, and listened to, Mary Oliver's beautiful poems.
I'm not quite brave enough to write and share a poem on the blog yet, since I don't, by far, consider myself a poet. What I want to do instead is share some of my favorite lines/phrases from Oliver's poems from the book Thirst.
*My work is loving the world.*
*the lovely meaninglessness of time*
*For a long time I was not even in this world*
*How to keep warm is always a problem, isn't it?*
*From the complications of loving you/ I think there is no end or return.*
*You have broken my heart./ Just as well.*
*In the city called Wait,/ also known as the airport,/ you might think about your life--/there is not much else to do.*
Beautiful, no? For more poems and writing about poetry, head over to Sunday Scribblings.
