Inspiration from Mary Oliver

September 2nd, 2008

Observing the visual beauty of a skunk Mary Oliver wrote and reminds us…

“…for it’s true, isn’t it,
in our world,
that the petals pooled with nectar, and the polished thorns
are a single thing –
that even the purest light, lacking the robe of darkness,
would be without expression –
that love itself, without it’s pain, would be
no more than a shruggable comfort.”

It’s a beautiful poem, you can read the whole thing here.
