"What Gorgeous Thing", by Mary Oliver

Looking for some Mary Oliver poems to read in the next Mexico Viniyoga Retreat, found this one:



What Gorgeous Thing

by Mary Oliver



I do not know what gorgeous thing

the bluebird keeps saying,

his voice easing out of his throat,

beak, body into the pink air

of the early morning. I like it

whatever it is. Sometimes

it seems the only thing in the world

that is without dark thoughts.

Sometimes it seems the only thing

in the world that is without

questions that can’t and probably

never will be answered, the

only thing that is entirely content

with the pink, then clear white

morning and, gratefully, says so.








California, May 2021
