Evening Poetry, April 23

In honor of National Poetry Month, and Mary Oliver, our beloved national poet who passed away in January, I will be posting one of her poems each evening in April. I am hoping to follow in the footsteps of Sarah Clarkson and read a poem on Instagram Live in the evenings as well…Follow me on Instagram to tune in.

(Today is my 2 month wedding anniversary and this is the poem I read to Alan when we said our vows.)

Everything That Was Broken

Everything that was broken has

Forgotten its brokenness. I live

now in a sky-house, through every

window the sun. Also your presence.

Our touching, our stories. Earthy

and holy both. How can this be, but

it is. Every day has something in

it whose name is Forever.

This poem is from the collection, Felicity.
