Everyday Wonder

glitter & gray …

glitter

maybe the raindrops
are just diamonds

maybe those gray clouds
are hammered silver

maybe these wet leaves
are a red carpet

this long winter
a white blanket

that we pull over us
untilΒ it’s warm. ❀

  1. I was running yesterday, in the rain, across the wet leaves, thinking: everyone writes of the glory of autumn, but is there goodness in the cold, wet, gray days? My ruminations again failed to form into a coherent thought (normal, as of late). Thanks for doing it for me.

    • I absolutely love it when I read something that feels like my own thoughts, or what they would be, if I had a little more time to think. πŸ™‚

      I discovered Mary Oliver much later than everyone else in the known universe, but I always felt that way about her work. (& I know, it’s not very chic or snobby-smart for me to like somebody who’s so popular and, ahem, “mainstream” … but I do.)

      Glad you enjoyed. Stay dry out there! πŸ™‚

    I feel a great empathy with your beautiful writing although our styles are not alike. You are writing, I think, about your situation, emotions and how you interact with nature and the world, very personal. Whereas I write a story based on my observation of people and actions outwith my control. My latest offering is now at poetrywithian.wordpress.com. I hope you will enjoy it.
