Good morning!  I love you and…

POETRY

I can’t imagine life without poetry.  I call them word-songs.  Poems are a way to take a snapshot of Life, to attempt to frame it within words in the hopes of making you feel beyond your everyday feelings.  They are like the markers along the path of pilgrimage, pointing the way, nudging you along.  Poetry, good poetry, helps you grow, transform, evolve.  Can we ever mention “good poetry” without including something from one of the Masters herself, Mary Oliver?  I know I can’t.  Here is one of her most beloved classics.  I hope you enjoy.

May you have a beautiful day!

Love,

Tabitha

WILD GEESE

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting —
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

LOVE

Have you ever met someone and instantly fallen in love with them?  I don’t mean only romantic love although that counts too.  I’m talking pure, boundaryless love.  You don’t know what it is about that person but you light up when you talk about them.  Your insides sorta squeal in delight at the mere thought of them.  You could just squeeeeeeeeeze them when you see them.  You.  Just.  Love them.  You know that kind of love?

I believe someone feels that way about you.  😉

Have a most gorgeous day!

Love,

Tabitha

Good morning!  I love you and…

TIME

It’s cold.  It’s dark.  You’ve been sleeping soundly but you are now beginning to stir.  You’re absolutely sure you have short minutes before the alarm rudely goes off so you’re afraid to look at the time.  Finally you can’t take it anymore.  What’s the bad news?

No bad news.  No bad news?

Hours.  You have hours before the alarm goes off.  Long, expansive, delicious hours.  So you hunker down, draw the covers in tighter, and with a sigh and a smile, drop your weight even further into the bed.

Yeah.  Like that.

May you find exquisite pools of expanded time throughout your day.  May they help you smile and stretch outward.  Expand. E x p a n d! 🙂

Much love,

Tabitha
