poems in the day

A poem is a delicate thing. Frost says it is but a momentary stay against confusion. For Dylan Thomas, a good poem is a gift to reality. To me, it is the sound of alluring words celebrating a circumstance of the soul; language refined to the essence of a single moment; the making of images and stories alive with life, inspiring the reader to make her own – all with the purpose of reducing suffering in the world, if only an infinitesimal amount, if only for a fleeting moment. Truth. Beauty. A poem.

inquiry for today~ dive into sweet nothings in word play….

radical bliss

Every morning,

tumult and quietude marry each other

and create light.

~Mary Oliver
