earth day (should be every day)

One of the painted barns of Cameron, NC.

POEM OF THE ONE WORLD by Mary Oliver

This morning

the beautiful white heron

was floating along above the water

and then into the sky of this

the one world

we all belong to

where everything

sooner or later

is a part of everything else

which thought made me feel

for a little while

quite beautiful myself.

  1. We have these awesome painted barns throughout Cameron. The son of the former pastor at my church is an artist in New York and brought a lot of his friends down several years ago to paint old tobacco barns. They’re beautiful.
