It doesn't have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few 
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don't try
to make them elaborate, this isn't
a contest but a doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.

- Mary Oliver


these words have given me cause to pause this week, and i want to remember that stir in my soul.
