one world soup.

poem of one world

this morning
the beautiful white heron 
was floating along above the water

and then into the sky of this
the one world
we all belong to

where everything 
sooner or later 
is a part of everything else

which thought made me feel 
for a little while
quite beautiful myself
-mary oliver/a thousand mornings

my wonderful writing teacher says you need to read 
poetry out loud to really hear it, understand it, feel it 
this one is worth your voice

for the last 2 weeks my family and i have been 
traveling the terrain of our immunity; 
pot holes, mud slides, hard times with the flu 
sore throats, head colds, fevers, a killer cough

i know it's the farthest thing from beautiful
to feel our bodies ache, heat up and
try to process this world
then i read this poem and i thought

we all do this
we all get down 
& we fight this flu
these colds 
we all have to stop 
we all have to allow 
our bodies to get well 

there is a one world beauty in that to me

so here is my one world  soup
