Under the orange
sticks of the sun
ashes of the night
turn into leaves again
and fasten themselves to the high branches ---
and the ponds appear
like black cloth
on which are painted islands - Mary Oliver
Poet, Mary Oliver believes in an "attitude of noticing." When she opens her senses, nature reveals its details.
Writing-as-mindfulness requires full presence in every moment. It requires an act of curiosity.
Focus on attention, awareness and an attitude of noticing. Reveal nature's wonder in your writing today.
