As we start the month of February, we are reminded that Spring is just around the corner. Spring is the season of growth when the gloom of winter is forgotten in the anticipation of growing brightness and life. Spring is also the season of hope when fresh buds bloom, animals awaken and the earth becomes alive. Therefore in these unusual times, we look to nature as a source of hope. This beautiful piece of poetry Wild Geese by Mary Oliver is a reminder that when we feel displacement or disconnection from what we are doing or where we find ourselves, we can become reconnected by spending time in nature.


Mary Oliver- Wild Geese
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
