Look, and Look Again

2015-12-25-04-00-47edit-800x686Continuing from yesterday’s post with more from
To Begin With, the Sweet Grass
by Mary Oliver


The witchery of living
is my whole conversation
with you, my darlings.
All I can tell you is what I know.

Look, and look again.
This world is not just a little thrill for
the eyes.

It’s more than bones.
It’s more than the delicate wrist with its
personal pulse.

It’s more than the beating of the single
It’s praising.
It’s giving until the giving feels like receiving.
You have a life–just image that!
You have this day, and maybe another,
and maybe
still another.
