One of Professor Sterling A Brown’s loviest poems (in my humble opinion) #sterlingabrown #poetry#greatpoets #readingblackpoets #readingsterlingbrown #favoritepoems#greatpoetsrevisited

Probably one of my favorite poems ever by @ladybookmad ❤️ also can we just appreciate the red lettering in this book! Anyone who is new to poetry Amanda Lovelace is a great person to start with. #thewitchdoesntburninthisone #amandalovelace #poetry #favoritepoems #nofilter #myphotography #latergram #redlettering #bookishthings #bookworm #booknerd #poems #poetrycollection

Probably the most well known line from this poem that seems to have grown in popularity in recent years (surely unrelated to the increasing popularity of yoga and spirituality in the western world 😉) .
.
Not throwing any shade, I totally have a @laughinglotusny tank with this very phrase printed on the front! 😂

Never forget where you came from 🌏🌕🌌

What do you stand for? What drives you? What lights you up? Your passions and your relentless urge to pursue them are what makes this world a better place. So don’t be scared, embarrassed, or second guess yourself. Your existence here on this Earth is intentional. Get out there and follow your dreams - take up space - exercise your rights. .

Поссорились? И дуешься ещё?
Твой выбор! Только мой тебе совет:
Когда ты на кого-то держишь зло,
Представь, что человека больше нет…

Что он исчез. Не будет никогда
Как прежде видеть, чувствовать, дышать…
Он больше не услышит те слова,
Которые ты так хотел сказать.

И будет всё равно, кто виноват:
Ничтожной станет ссора в этот час!
«Прости» на ветер сотни раз подряд…
Ну, что же ты? Не лучше ли сейчас?

Нам нужно научиться просто жить.
Жить без желания всё вновь начать сначала.
А, знаешь, чтобы искренне любить
Так много времени и так ничтожно мало!

Обиду держишь? Дуешься ещё?
Твой выбор! Только мой тебе совет:
Когда ты на любимых держишь зло,
Представь, что их на свете больше нет…

“There was a roaring in the wind all night;
The rain came heavily and fell in floods;
But now the sun is rising calm and bright;
The birds are singing in the distant woods;
Over his own sweet voice the Stock-dove broods;
The jay makes answer as the Magpie chatters;
And all the air is filled with pleasant noise of waters.” -William Wordsworth, from Resolution and Independence #happyhippie #gypsysoul #favoritepoems #poetry #williamwordsworth #resolutionandindependence #literature #woods #rains #trees

It is my work
to love the world
to heal the broken hearted
and bear the burdens
too heavy for others.
It is my position
to sit quietly while another talks
working it out in his mind
as he speaks the words.
It is my posture
to kneel in subjugation
to life and the dark places
of mine and others,
to bind wounds
and apply pressure
to stop the bleeding.
It is my calling
to stand them up
and send them off
when they are at least
partially well,
getting the rest of their wellness
not from me
but out there in life.
It is for me
to witness pain
and fear
and not be moved,
and not have fear myself.
It is my life
to be able to help
when the other doesn’t want the help.
It is for me
to come alongside
and be present,
do what is asked,
say what must be said
and absorb the reaction
before it hurts another.
And every time
my bones are stronger after.

Listened to a talk by Sadhguru this morning and he said “life does not change because you change the content of your life. It changes because you change the context” . I believe this is such a powerful lesson because it is so easy to get caught up in the noise and confusion of life, that we forget just to be grateful for the fact we are alive. Instead of measuring your day by your productivity level measure it by how often you stopped to take a deep breath, tune in to your self, and reflect in awe and gratitude on the fact that you are here, alive. .
.
Keep that in mind, my dear nine-to-fivers, as you return to work today! ✌️💛🙏

Of course there are plenty of negative things in the world to focus on, but don’t forget the beauty. ⛰🎣🌎💚

Happy Friday, friends! Anyone else obsessed with Shel Silverstein? Sometimes when I'm winding down at night, I'll pick up my copy of "Where the Sidewalk Ends" and read this poem out loud. I think it may even be a good printable for the nursery! 😁✨💙 .

#Poetrydate w a friend at @thirstyscholarindy this evening. Bringing some @andrewgibby some @jamiemortara and an issue of @poetryfoundation 's #PoetryMagazine for this really excellent @jayasavige poem called "Carousel" that's one of my absolute #favoritepoems #AndreaGibson #JaimeMortara #PoetryFoundation #JayaSavige #poetrypoetrypoetrypoemshotheycalledlikeathundercat

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
