Simply Mary Oliver ~ A Quote

 

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 silenceĀ in which

another voice may

speak.
