I like Christianity, literature, Ireland, being Anglican, horseback riding, travel, books, studying religions, ranch work, puppies, C.S. Lewis, Guinness, fields of grass, Oxford commas, and very large cups of tea.

National Poetry Month Day 19: To His Mistress Going to Bed by John Donne

literarymagpie:

COME, madam, come, all rest my powers defy ;
Until I labour, I in labour lie.
The foe ofttimes, having the foe in sight,
Is tired with standing, though he never fight.
Off with that girdle, like heaven’s zone glittering,
But a far fairer world encompassing.

Every one of us is called upon, probably many times, to start a new life. A frightening diagnosis, a marriage, a move, loss of a job or a limb or a loved one, a graduation, bringing a new baby home: it’s impossible to think at first how this all will be possible. Eventually, what moves it all forward is the subterranean ebb and flow of being alive among the living.

In my own worst seasons I’ve come back from the colorless world of despair by forcing myself to look hard, for a long time, at a single glorious thing: a flame of red geranium outside my bedroom window. And then another: my daughter in a yellow dress. And another: the perfect outline of a full, dark sphere behind the crescent moon. Until I learned to be in love with my life again. Like a stroke victim retraining new parts of the brain to grasp lost skills, I have taught myself joy, over and over again.

On Resurrection (Easter Day, 2014) as I pondered the sermon from this morning

— Barbara Kingsolver, “High Tide in Tucson.”
