whew! been one of those days!
finally sittin' down to blog.
there's been a poem i've been wanting to post now for about a week.
tonite seems like the perfect time as i would just end up rambling about
the wonderful birthday adventure we had with josh.
it truly was wonderful!
a poem that will knock your socks off.
by mary oliver
i read this and when i hit the last line i almost fell over.
gosh, do i understand that line......
The slippery green frog
that went to his death
in the heron's pink throat
was my small brother,
and the heron
with the white plumes
like a crown on his head
who is washing now his great sword-beak
in the shining pond
is my tall brother.
My heart dresses in black
