abstract sumi e by marilyn wells from Mary Oliver

“By TheLaws of Faith” by Marilyn Wells, 14″ x 18″ on mulberry paper, triple mounted, $385

…by the laws

  of their faith, not logic,

    they opened their wings

      softly and stepped

        Over every dark thing.

  – M.O. “Egrets” 1850S

For 5280 Magazine featuring abstract sumi e by Marilyn Wells in their Holiday Dec/Jan 2020, end piece, I was pleased to be interviewed by (see Instagram) @ChristineDeOrioAssociate Editor, and @danapsmith79, Art Director, who is working with my images for the feature. Special thanks to each of them and to Editor Michelle Johnson, https://www.5280.com/2019/09/hello-home/

mary oliver’s poem egrets

Mary Oliver tells in eloquent poetry of going down to the water’s edge of a pond, bruised and bleeding from scratches and mosquitos, looking across the empty water, which suddenly wrinkles into life as three egrets “a shower of white fire!” moves out. “Even half-asleep, they have such faith in the world that has made them — tilting through the water, unruffled, sure, by the laws of their faith not logic, they opened their wings softly and stepped over every dark thing.”

When I am hurting,  or bruised and bleeding inside, I say the Welcoming Prayer taught by Contemplative Outreach after Mary Mrozowski.

It helps me into this place of faith, not logic, where I can step over every dark thing.
