Mary Oliver & The Witchery of Living

The witchery of living
is my whole conversation
with you, my darlings.
All I can tell you is what I know.

– Mary Oliver –

Mary Oliver & The Witchery of Living

“Will the hungry ox stand in the field and not eat
of the sweet grass?
Will the owl bite off its own wings?
Will the lark forget to lift its body in the air or
forget to sing?
Will the rivers run upstream?

Behold, I say — behold
the reliability and the finery and the teachings
of this gritty earth gift.”

So begins this poem from Mary Oliver. It is a poem that bristles with imperatives, pointblank inquiries and penetrating insight. It is a poem large of heart and long of stride, that whisks the reader right into the enchanted thicket that is,’the witchery of living.’ Read it here. { read more }

Be The Change

What does this poem spark within you?
If you were to try to encapsulate the sum of all that you know of life, what would you say?
