“The focus of ‘flower’ is emotion and to make you feel peaceful”
In her poem, Morning at Blackwater, Mary Oliver brings her emotions to the page…
“It’s almost dawn
and the usual half-miracles begin….
and the white blossoms of the swamp honeysuckle…
shake from the folds of their bodies
such happiness it enters the air as fragrance,
the day’s first pale and elegant affirmation.
And the old gods liked so well, they say,
the sweet odor of prayer.”
May we be blessed to embody our senses, and rejoice in their prayer.
