Vyaya Bhava-12


to the

12 sthāna


by Mary Oliver

" Everyday I see or I hear something

That more or less kills me with delight

That leaves me like a needle in the haystack of light.

It is what I was born for

To look, to listen, to lose myself inside this soft world

To instruct myself over and over

In joy and acclamation.

Nor am I talking about the exceptional

The fearful, the dreadful, the very extravagant,

But of the ordinary, the common, the very drab

The daily presentations.

O good scholar I say to myself

How can you help but grow wise

With such teachings as these,

The untrimmable light of the world

The oceans' shine

The prayers that are made out of grass."
