“Of course! The path to heaven
doesn’t lie down in flat miles
It’s in the imagination
with which you perceive this world
and the gestures
with which you honour it”
– an excerpt from “The Swan” by Mary Oliver from New and Selected Poems, Volume 1, Beacon Press 2005
How does your imagination perceive this world? What are the gestures with which you honour this beautiful place?
