Grace

                         For Mary Oliver 


                                            ... filled with grace / her poems embody how I hope to live this life

                          ... some days I come close / other days remind me

                                                                                                            "Thank you. Yes."

  1. Beautiful and life-affirming poem, Teresa, and I sure like the dedication --a lady who asks, "Tell me, what is it you plan to do/ With your one wild and precious life?" And of course it takes a lifetime to answer Mary's question.

    1. Thank you, Geo. Mary has profoundly influenced my life and my poetry, which seem interchangeable at this point.
