Celebrating National Poetry Month

My muse this month is Mary Oliver, whose spirit lives on in her achingly beautiful poems that celebrate the natural world and impart simple lessons abut the importance of paying attention and living in the moment. In her poem “I Go Down To The Shore,” she writes:

I go down to the shore in the morning and depending on the hour the waves are rolling in or moving out, and I say, oh, how miserable, what shall — what should I do? And the sea says in its lovely voice: Excuse me, I have work to do.
