4th Annual Iris Sale going on now!
I am not sure I can choose a favorite. I love so many. But I so completely enjoy Mary Oliver's words. She has many beautiful poems.


It doesn't have to be

the blue iris, it could be

weeds in a vacant lot, or a few

small stones; just

pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don't try

to make them elaborate, this isn't

a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which

another voice may speak.
