Monday Mornings

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday!

Because it’s one of those Mondays and sometimes you just need a day . . .

 

Today
By Mary Oliver
Today I’m flying low and I’m
not staying a word.
I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.
The world goes on as it must,
the bees in the garden rumbling a little,
the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten.
And so forth.
But I’m taking the day off.
Quiet as a feather.
I hardly move though I’m traveling
a terrific distance.
Stillness. One of the doors
into the temple.

 

Make it a great week!
