“Moments” – Mary Oliver

Moments
 
There are moments that cry out to be fulfilled.
Like, telling someone you love them.
Or giving your money away, all of it.
 
Your heart is beating, isn’t it?
You’re not in chains, are you?
 
There is nothing more pathetic than caution
when headlong might save a life,
even, possibly, your own.

      • I don’t read as much poetry as I should, as I always come away the richer for it, but yes, it’s good stuff! You should check out Stephen Dunn. His ‘New and Selected Poems’ is a wonderful compendium…. Warmest wishes you you, too!
