these beautiful losses

The soul is the same in all living creatures,

although the body of each is different.


when I assume greater kindnesses….

inquiry for today~ tend to the small things….

sifting through dreams

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 the doorway into thanks,

and a silence in which another voice may speak.

~Mary Oliver
