You do not have to be good (poem) #withcaptions


you do not have to be good you do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting you only have to let the soft animal of
your body love what it loves tell me about dispair yours and I will tell you mine meanwhile the world goes on meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscape over the prairies in the deep trees, the
mountains and the rivers meanwhile the wild geese high in the clear
blue air are headed home again whoever you are no matter how lonely, the world offers
itself to your imagination calls to you like the wild geese harsh and exciting over and over announcing your place in the family things –“Wild Geese” by Mary Oliver thanks for watching

  1. I get so much joy seeing the large koi fish swimming next to the geese.
