A nice way to start the week

I seem to be coming across Mary Oliver poems at every turn lately. Here's a new favorite that's definitely worth sharing.

It doesn't have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don't try
to make them elaborate, this isn't
a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.

(from the collection Thirst)

Happy Monday.
