Poetry Friday -- William Stafford
I've been thinking about William Stafford all week, ever since the Stafford Fest at 7-Imp last Friday. I'm definitely overwhelmed this week, and I'm feeling neither heroic nor wise. Sigh. Here's hoping for the wisdom to get things right in my life. Soon.
The Little Ways That Encourage Good Fortune
Wisdom is having things right in your life
and knowing why.
If you do not have things right in your life
you will be overwhelmed:
you may be heroic, but you will not be wise.
If you have things right in your life
but do not know why,
you are just lucky, and you will not move
in the little ways that encourage good fortune.

The round up today is at The Miss Rumphius Effect.
May you move in the little ways that encourage good fortune this coming week!
