Monday Selections


Sometimes the mountain
is hidden from me in veils
of cloud, sometimes
I am hidden from the mountain
in veils of inattention, apathy, fatigue,
when I forget or refuse to go
down to the shore or a few yards
up the road, on a clear day,
to reconfirm
that witnessing presence.

– Denise Levertov, “Witness”

  1. Love this poem! Perfect timing. It happens. Sometimes I lose my footing and lose my vision. But it comes round again and I can reconfirm that witnessing presence.
    With the gift of grace and good friends!
