What the sky sees – A Still Saturday offering


I awaken and wonder what the day will bring. It will happen, soon enough. For now, I lie in the dark and feel the air moving around me, the stillness of the house all around me. I feel the night lift to awaken to daybreak slipping through the cracks at the edge of the horizon.

This is morning.

This is a new day dawning.

This is my world.


My blog friend Sandra Heska King offers up Still Saturday every week. Today’s Still Saturday, with her invitation towards ‘being nothing’ and the words of Mary Oliver she shares,  inspired my poetic soul to write my own Still Saturday contribution over on my poetry blog, A Poetry Affair.

It is a wonderful feeling, to awaken to the stillness of a Saturday morning quietly stretching into the day and feel the muse stirring deep within my roots.

Summer is in the distance. Snow covers the ground and still, I am mindful of the sky above me.

What the sky sees

— thank you Mary Oliver and Sandra for the inspiration.

I believe we each have the capacity to be the change we want to see in the world, to make a world of difference. I believe we are creative beings on the journey of our lifetimes. It's up to each of us to Live It Up and SHINE!
