A recently read poem has been re-playing in my head:
The Uses of Sorrow
by Mary Oliver
(In my sleep I dreamed this poem)
Someone I loved once gave me
a box full of darkness.
It took me years to understand
that this, too, was a gift.

Thanks for the Mary Oliver poem. I hadn’t read this one. Amazing really. (I often teach her poem “Singapore.” I highly recommend it. (Nice blog, too. I read found it while searching for readings of the film Bloomington. I like interpretation of the ending.)
thanks for taking the time to comment~
truthfully, i’m not a huge poetry buff and i came across mary oliver’s poem by accident but found it beautiful. i’ll be sure to read some of her other pieces too. 🙂
