Poetry Friday: A Thousand Mornings by Mary Oliver

Current Mood: sleepy
Current Song: Too Much to Dream by Allie X

The sea can do craziness, it can do smooth,
it can lie down like silk breathing
or toss havoc shoreward; it can give

gifts and withhold all; it can rise, ebb, froth
like an incoming frenzy of fountains, or it can
sweet-talk entirely. As I can too,

and so, no doubt, can you, and you.

- A Thousand Mornings by Mary Oliver
