A little hope for your Monday morning …

I have a lot on my mind tonight. There are some big changes around the bend for me, and as I stand on the margins of them, it seems right to be quiet for a little while. 

To think, and let the empty space stretch out its limbs.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t have some light to share today. I’ve been perusing through my favorite Mary Oliver poems again, and this one, somehow, struck me as right for the moment.

Enjoy, friends. And happy Monday…

“The Fist,” from Mary Oliver’s collection, Thirst.
Today — I promise — is an invitation…

Again. ❀


  1. Beautiful! So true, and so timely. So easy to forget (especially for someone like me – I am always shaking my little fists). I’m glad that this poem started my day. Thank you for sharing it!

    1. πŸ™‚ I’m glad it started your day, too!

      Here’s hoping we all hold our hands open to today’s goodness … Even when it goes against our natural inclinations.

      Happy Monday, girl. Enjoy this new week!!

    1. Aw, thank you, friend. I’m so glad this little poem spoke to you… I’ve always loved it so, from the very first time it.

      And thank you for your kind words. The change is good, but all change is a little scary. Happy New Week to you! πŸ™‚
