Poetry Sunday: Invitation by Mary Oliver
I dip into poetry throughout the week. I do it quite randomly, without a plan or agenda. But I am often astonished to find that the poem I have randomly chosen is exactly the one that I needed at that particular moment. And so it was when I landed on this poem by Mary Oliver a few days ago. She writes:
it is a serious thingYes, exactly.
just to be alive
on this fresh morning
in the broken world.
