Love this calaca, love Mary Oliver and love this line:

Never in my life
had I felt myself so near
that porous line
where my own body was done with
and the roots and the stems and the flowers


I love Mary Oliver and actually don't have any of her books. I'm almost tempted to d/l one on my Kindle. Love your calaca covered with blossoms.

Love the idea of a calaca a day and so am playing with! Thank you for the opportunity Rebecca, blessings

Lovely white flowers.

Wow. Mary Oliver is a favorite poet but I don't remember ever reading this particular poem. Deeply moving.


La Calaca holding my favorite flowers! and the writing of one of my favorite poets. What a great post!

A truly awesome poem, I felt it!!!


Wow Mary Oliver's words totally blow me away. Perfect with this photograph.


I have thought on this poem all day... it reminds of the Frida Kahlo painting of Luther Burbank, it reminds me that I still have much to surrender, or at least I think I do, I actually think it is as simple as falling asleep and waking... XO
