Knitting has the power to bring me out of any blues. I like to think knitting has saved my life countless times. It probably happened to you too? If I have my knitting with me, and if I can find at least a brief moment to unwind connect with it, I will have, for sure, an amazing day.
And speaking of poems, I’d like to include here a poem that I love. It reminds me to appreciate how lucky we are to be living this amazing day, even when skies look dark and gray.
i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any–lifted from the no
of all nothing–human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
