"Today", by Mary Oliver

Today Mary Oliver Today I’m flying low and I’m not saying a word I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.


The world goes on as it must, the bees in the garden rumbling a little, the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten. And so forth.


But I’m taking the day off. Quiet as a feather. I hardly move though really I’m traveling a terrific distance.


Stillness. One of the doors into the temple.


from A Thousand Mornings, Penguin Press; 2012
