Praying by Mary Oliver

Post Series: Poetry Thursday

As promised, ‘Mary Oliver month’ continues today. Her poems have been helping me with connections; both to the nature that she considers sacred, and to friends with their own stories of Oliver’s impact on their lives.

 

Praying

by Mary Oliver

 

It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don’t try
to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.
