TO BEGIN WITH,
1.
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.
2.
Eat bread and understand comfort.
Drink water, and understand delight.
Visit the garden where the scarlet trumpets are opening their bodies for the hummingbirds
who are drinking the sweetness, who are thrillingly gluttonous.
.
For one thing leads to another.
Soon you will notice how stones shine underfoot.
Eventually tides will be the only calendar you believe in.
.
And someone's face, whom you love, will be as a star
both intimate and ultimate,
and you will be both heart-shaken and respectful.
.
And you will hear the air itself, like a beloved, whisper:
oh, let me, for a while longer, enter the two
beautiful bodies of your lungs.
.
.

do not go gentle into that good night, old age should burn and rave at close of day; rage, rage against the dying of the light. - dylan thomas

Evening.
The Cloths of Heaven

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths
Wrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloth of night
and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

W. B. Yeats

Why am I dressed up? You'll have to watch the #PWRstudios video this Wednesday to find out.

Why am I reading #poetry by #cslewis? Because it's really good, that's why. If you didn't know, Lewis was a poet, and #spiritsinbondage is a wonderful book.

“To love everything, not just parts …
To love all of yourself, not just certain traits …
To rest in not knowing …
_
To carry the cross
and to lay your burden down …
_
To savor the medicine blue of moon,
the fierce sugar of tangerine …
_
To be a Christ unto others,
a Christ unto one’s self …
_
To laugh …
_
To be shameless, wild, and silly …
_
To know—fully, headlong,
without compunction—the ordinary magic
of our beautiful human bodies …
_
these seem worthwhile pursuits, life-long tasks.”
_
From Teddy Macker’s “A Poem for My Daughter”

Напиши мені якось під вечір,
як ти вправно ладнаєш з весною.
Напиши мені хоч пару речень,
як скучаєш там сильно за мною.
Розкажи, як ідуть твої справи,
рівно центром чи може по краю.
Розкажи про дерева і травень,
Я розкажу, як я тут ладнаю.
Подзвони мені, сміло й незграбно,
як у паніці дзвонять до мами.
Я розкажу, як холодно й хмарно
тут без тебе буває ночами.
Ти пиши, якщо скучиш десь раптом,
незалежно від місяця й дати.
І найдеться у нас ще багато
одне одному що розказати💭🍃💐

Sliding in on the last day of #nationalpoetrymonth to share one of my favorite poets: Emily Dickinson. I feel like I pick up something new from her poems every time I read them! Who’s your favorite poet?

“How to Triumph Like a Girl” by
Ada Limón
💪🏾
I like the lady horses best,
how they make it all look easy,
like running 40 miles per hour
is as fun as taking a nap, or grass.
I like their lady horse swagger,
after winning. Ears up, girls, ears up!
But mainly, let's be honest, I like
that they're ladies. As if this big
dangerous animal is also a part of me,
that somewhere inside the delicate
skin of my body, there pumps
an 8-pound female horse heart,
giant with power, heavy with blood.
Don't you want to believe it?
Don't you want to lift my shirt and see
the huge beating genius machine
that thinks, no, it knows,
it's going to come in first.
💪🏾

Last night I saw “I Feel Pretty” with some incredible girl friends and I loved the message. It made me think about how whatever you believe about yourself is true. It also reminded me of this incredible poem by Maya Angelou. If you do one thing today, do this: believe that you are phenomenal. Because it’s true. // “Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need for my care. ’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.”
