"Poem Of The One World", by Mary Oliver

Updated: Aug 29

My friend Toni Goodman shared this beautiful Mary Oliver poem with us. Thank you Toni, my poetry mentor!



Poem of the One World

Mary Oliver



This morning

the beautiful white heron

was floating along above the water


and then into the sky of this

the one world

we all belong to


where everything

sooner or later

is a part of everything else


which thought made me feel

for a little while

quite beautiful myself.

Since I have not taken a photo of a white heron, here is one of a snowy egret, also a gorgeous bird.
