Best preacher that ever was

We’ve been having these morning dates for years.  Love feeling the sun on my face with her, and beholding all this glory:

Why I Wake Early

Hello, sun in my face.

Hello, you who make the morning and spread it over the fields

and into the faces of the tulips

and the nodding morning glories,

and into the windows of, even, the

miserable and crotchety-

best preacher that ever was.

dear star, that just happens

to be where you are in the universe

to keep us from ever – darkness,

to ease us with warm touching.

to hold us in the great hands of light-

good morning, good morning, good morning.


Watch, now, how I start the day

in happiness, in kindness.


-Mary Oliver
