Quote of the Day


Poetry Friday: Luci Shaw

Flathead Lake, Montana
“Christ plays in ten thousand places” –G. M. Hopkins

Lying here on the short grass, I am
a bowl for sunlight.

Silence. A bee. The lip of water
over stones. The swish and slap, hollow

under the dock. Down-shore
a man sawing wood.

Christ in the sunshine laughing
through the green translucent wings

of maple seeds. A bird
resting its song on two notes.

~Luci Shaw

Luci Shaw is one my favorite poets. Her images delight and surprise me and her poems often teach me or, better yet, remind me of truths I once knew but had forgotten.

The poetry round-up is over at a wrung sponge.
