Sunshine Rapture

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
(from "Wild Geese", by Mary Oliver)

Now that's a happy dog!

Lori said...

I'm trying to think, have I EVER been quite that happy? That "in the moment," and that carefree. This is SO why I want to be a golden in my next life.
