I want to be

I want to be Annie Dillard
or Mary Oliver
turning day into deep awe
looking at ordinary things
and finding God

I want deep thoughts
in place of linear, surface
I want density, volume, depth

I want to share awe, love, meaning, life
The magenta hydrangea
The green fern dappled in morning sun
The blue jay wary--a blue jay wary?
stepping into the pool of water

To craft wonder into words

So far, so good - on the Dillard Oliver thing.
