Thank Goodness, its SkyWatch Friday

My contribution to SkyWatch Friday--there's a white Egret hidden among the lily pads and shade of the tall trees next to the lake, listening as I approach. Any white showing through is the overcast sky's reflection this morning.Wherever it was
I was supposed to be
this morning--
whatever it was I said
I would be doing--
I was standing
at the edge of the field--
I was hurrying
through my own soul,
opening its dark doors--
I was leaning out;
I was listening.
from Mockingbirds
Mary Oliver

Hello, my dear friend Noni,

Okay, blogger wasn't kind to me and wouldn't let me comment. Let's try again.

You are among the bloggers who have published poems (or excerpts) by Mary Oliver. I must check her out soon!

Sorry I haven't been commenting lately. I haven't been commenting anywhere. Real life intruded, big time. But now I am back and intend to have a fabulous summer, which includes re-connecting with my best blogging friends.

I am off to see what other posts I missed. I hope you don't mind if I don't comment on them all. I just got too far behind.

Love, Julie
