Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, --and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of --Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air...
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew --
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God. 🖤
{High Flight, John Gillespie Magee, Jr} #missingman #favoriteplaces #favoritepoems

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
Meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
The Guest House

About suffering they were never wrong,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The old Masters: how well they understood⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Its human position: how it takes place⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While someone else is eating or opening a window or just walking dully along;⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How, when the aged are reverently, passionately waiting⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the miraculous birth, there always must be⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Children who did not specially want it to happen, skating⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On a pond at the edge of the wood:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They never forgot⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That even the dreadful martyrdom must run its course⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anyhow in a corner, some untidy spot⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Where the dogs go on with their doggy life and the torturer's horse⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Scratches its innocent behind on a tree.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In Breughel's Icarus, for instance: how everything turns away⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Quite leisurely from the disaster; the ploughman may⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have heard the splash, the forsaken cry,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But for him it was not an important failure; the sun shone⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As it had to on the white legs disappearing into the green⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Water, and the expensive delicate ship that must have seen⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Something amazing, a boy falling out of the sky,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Had somewhere to get to and sailed calmly on.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
W.H. Auden⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.”— Kahlil Gibran, On Children.
We are (almost) all someone’s child, someone’s beloved... and we should thank the mother of the mountains and the sky and the people who brought us here, before it’s too late.

tell me about your despair, yours, and i will tell you mine...meanwhile, the world goes on.
in some places, it’s sun on prairies and rain in the mountains and wild geese soaring overhead.
in others, it’s trains rumbling and shoppers bustling and long days spent in work. either way, the globe keeps spinning—and i’m hoping it still offers itself to our imagination, no matter who we are, no matter how lonely. i’m hoping we all have a place in the family of things.
mary oliver says it’s true, so i suppose i’ll take her word for it.

BLESSINGS OF OUR SUN // 💛🌞💛
“Whatever lamps on Earth or Heaven may shine
Are portions of one power, which is mine...
I am the eye with which the Universe
Beholds itself and knows itself divine;
All harmony of instrument or verse,
All prophecy, all medicine are mine,
All light of Art or Nature; to my song
Victory and praise in their own right belong." ~ Percy Bysshe Shelly, Hymn of Apollo, 1820 #morningprayer #inti #materialuminahome #sunrise #eyeofgod #sunship #favoritepoems #nofilter #illuminations #thismysticlife

❄❄❄
Что бы не случалось в этой жизни,
Я храню в душе любовь и свет.
Знаешь, в детстве я упала с вишни-
Папа мне купил велосипед!
⠀⠀
Я расшибла в кровь свои колени-
Мама подарила мне мольберт!
Я упорно рисовала тени,
Но упрямо получался свет!
⠀⠀
А потом мне привезли котёнка..
Чёрного до кончика хвоста!
(Вот так счастье было для ребёнка
Заглянуть в наивные уста!)
_
Я росла и кот мой рос со мною,
А однажды в марте убежал..
(Нужно ль говорить, что той весною
Первый раз я обрела печаль?)
⠀⠀
Но тебе, мой друг, какое дело,
Где начало всех моих начал?
Ты хотел меня увидеть белой,
И моей души не замечал.
⠀⠀
А теперь брезгливо отстранившись
Смотришь, сколько шрамов у меня-
Это в детстве я упала с вишни!
А потом ещё разок с коня!
⠀⠀
А потом!..
Но ты уже не слушал
Отпускаю - так учила мать.
Но прошу, не лезь в чужие души,
Если не готов их познавать. ⠀

Ах Астахова

Collection of special poems about the same mystery: 📖📝
Mysteries, Yes
From the book “Evidence: Poems” by Mary Oliver ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Truly, we live with mysteries too marvelous
to be understood.
How grass can be nourishing in the
mouths of the lambs.
How rivers and stones are forever
in allegiance with gravity
while we ourselves dream of rising.
How two hands touch and the bonds
will never be broken.
How people come, from delight or the
scars of damage,
to the comfort of a poem.
Let me keep my distance, always, from those
who think they have the answers.
Let me keep company always with those who say
"Look!" and laugh in astonishment,
and bow their heads. ~ Mary Oliver ~

Today Alwyn has a poem to share! (Spoiler: This poem was selected for publishing in the Creative Communications summer 2018 anthology)
.
Serene Thoughts Near the Sea

Take me away, to where the seagulls cry their never-ending song of life,
Where the mist is thick and the tender, lapping waves pound against the sloping shore
Take me far away, far away
Take me away, take me home

A windblown figure on a rock so huge
That could, so could be me
That is me

Waves are pounding at the shore
And the light is coming in

The mist, the sand, the beautiful sea
Is getting into me

On the rocks looking down
On the edge looking down
A thrill of life
The sea is goring into me
Pushing me into its watery spell
Sheer cliffs
Sheer cliffs looking down
It's horrifying
Beautifying
I am standing by the sea
