This will be a brief post because poetry is often brief. Today I had the joyful experience of hearing a person I truly admire read several poems. They were by Mary Oliver from a new collection called Blue Horses. The poems she read brought tears to my eyes and to hers. I don’t often read poetry, but the poems I read most recently happened to be by Mary Oliver.

One of my posts this month was about pausing. I’m going to take time each day to pause and ponder a poem. I think I’ll start with Mary Oliver’s New and Selected Poems, Volume One which is on my bedside table needing more attention. Want to join me? It’s good for the soul.
