Dancing Words: The journey

20140128-153438.jpg

The Journey

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice-
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
“Mend my life!”
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations, though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen branches and stones.
but little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do-
determined to save
the only life you could save.

Mary Oliver, Dream Work, Grove Atlantic Inc., 1986 & New and Selected Poems, Beacon Press, 1992.

Found: Bowerbirds

When the temperature drops, I throw on my long johns, knitwear, hat, scarf and mittens and look for some tunes to warm the cockles of my heart. Bowerbirds have been doing the trick these last few icy days. I can’t feel my nose but my ears are happy.

Nose-warmer

No surprise that I like this one. This southern girl, she knows the Northern Lights.

Bowerbirds casually making music in the canned goods section.

If it doesn’t warm you enough then maybe add some whiskey?
