Oh, friends. I have some sad news to report: I finished my Wendell Berry book of poetry. I gasped when I got to the end and hadn’t realized that I never wanted it to be over! So it feels fitting to share this poem with you today:
Once there was nothing,
not even darkness,
not even silence,
not even nothing.
Think of that.
This Day: Collected and New Sabbath Poems by Wendell Berry
I wish I was friends with Wendell Berry. I wish I could open up gmail and send him an email and tell him exactly what I think of that and have him reply to me. This collection of poetry was nearly 400 pages long, so I’m guessing there were almost that many poems included. It was a wonderful ride!
My next book of poetry will be WHEREAS by Layli Long Soldier. I can’t wait to share some of it with you.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend and can start the week feeling fresh and ready. Take good care!
