To Be Dazzled by Poet Mary Oliver

“Still, what I want in my life
is to be willing to be dazzled~
to cast aside the weight of facts
and maybe even
to float a little above this difficult world.

“I want to believe I am looking
into the white fire of a great mystery.
I want to believe that the imperfections are nothing~
that the light is everything~
that it is more than the sum
of each flawed blossom rising and fading.
And I do.”

    “…white fire of a great mystery…” It certainly is. Nice verse.

Cyan birds sing, hidden. Ruby-throated hummingbirds flash amongst lemon trees. Shy creatures peer from purple shadow. Nature is a glorious tapestry.

I paint from my heart. I lost my mind a long time ago…
