Every day

I see or hear


that more or less

kills me

with delight,

that leaves me

like a needle

in the haystack

of light.

It was what I was born for -

to look, to listen,

to lose myself

inside this soft world -

to instruct myself

over and over

in joy, and acclamation.

~ Mary Oliver (US, 1935-2019),

from “Mindful,” Why I Wake Early

Guided Meditation, 2012, 10:22 minutes

Mother tongue:

to the child just born

If I were eloquent in your language

I would try to tell you


how it is

when something difficult loves you,


how it is
when you begin to love it back,


how this can

cost you everything.
