glammy boho girl

Denise is the boho bombshell,Canon Rebel XTI

When I am among the trees,
especially the willows and the honey locust,
equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,
they give off such hints of gladness,
I would almost say that they save me, and daily.

I am so distant from the hope of myself,
in which I have goodness, and discernment,
and never hurry through the world
but walk slowly, and bow often.

Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out, "Stay awhile."
The light flows from their branches.

And they call again, "It's simple," they say,
"and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine."

~Mary Oliver

My new year's wish for all of you is to go easy, to be filled with light, and to shine. Happy New Year! (Mondo Beyondo will be back again this week so think about starting your list...)

I love that photo. Her eyes cast out so much passion, love, strength, and courage.

P.S. On my Mondo Beyondo list is being photographed by you. Your photos are simply divine. The way you capture people cannot even be described in words.

Much love,
Kimberly

Andrea,

Your "Lists Like Prayers" entry has stayed with me since you wrote it, years ago now. I come back and reread it often.

I'll be joining in Mondo Beyondo with you.

Happy 2008.

I haven't been in the blogosphere long enough to know what Mondo Beyondo is, but I am looking forward to it! This lovely poem reminds me of a prayer I have that calls for an "unclenched moment".
Trees do have something to say to us.
