Full Moon by Bethany
The University of California San Diego Center for Mindfulness has a list of poetry and other readings they use in classes which I thought y'all might like to see (it's got Wendell Berry on it, and Rumi, and Mary Oliver...)
Here's one of the poems:
Everyone you see, you say to them,
Of course you do not do this out loud;
Someone would call the cops.
Still though, think about this,
This great pull in us
Why not become the one
Who lives with a full moon in each eye
That is always saying,
With that sweet moon language,
What every other eye in this world
Is dying to Hear.
And now a charming video of kindergarten students explaining how to calm down:
Today's Little Ditty is the Poetry Friday round-up host.
