Everyday



I found that today on Philip Carr-Gomm's Weblog. That’s so wonderful, I have to share it with you!


Everyday
I see or hear
something
that more or less
kills me

with delight,
that leaves me
like a needle
in the haystack

of light.

It was what I was born for –
to look, to listen,
to lose myself

inside this soft world –
to instruct myself
over and over
in joy,

and acclamation.

Nor am I talking
about the exceptional,
the fearful, the dreadful,

the very extravagant –
but of the ordinary,
the common, the very drab,
the daily presentations.

Oh, good scholar,
I say to myself,
how can you help
but grow wise

with such teachings
as these –
the untrimmable light
of the world,

the ocean’s shine,
the prayers that are made
out of grass?
(Mary Oliver)
