Hmmm, I'm suprised by how long it's been since I last wrote something here. Surprising because all these thoughts, ideas and random musings are in my head and then I realize I enjoyed thinking them, but never actually wrote them down. Sounds a little bit pyschotic doesn't it? Oh, well. I'm determined to do better.
Here's what touched my heart today:
At BlackwaterPond the tossed waters have settled after a night of rain.
I dip my cupped hands. I drink
a long time. It tastes
like stone, leaves, fire. It falls cold
into my body, waking the bones. I hear them
deep inside me, whispering
Oh, what is that beautiful thing
that just happened?
-- Mary Oliver, from "New and Selected Poems"
