Cynthia just sent me the following and I absolutely love it:
Listen, are you breathing just a little,
and calling it a life?...
For how long will you continue to listen to those dark shouters,
caution and prudence?
Fall in! Fall in!
Of course, I've loved just about every line Mary Oliver has ever put to paper. Reading her poetry is on my "self-soothing/uplift" list.
