new favorite poem.

I absolutely love this poem by current U.S. Poet Laureate W.S. Merwin. The imagery has stuck with me all day. lv, molly

Separation

Your absence has gone through me

Like thread through a needle.

Everything I do is stitched with its color.

  1. Hi Molly – I saw your comment over at my ramblings (thanks for visiting!) and came over to see your site.

    This poem really caught me off guard and held me. I lost my son 5 years ago and it was as if this poem held the experience in it’s few lines. Wow. Thanks so much for posting.

    Great blog as well – love the cute pics of the foods in the recipes!

    • Holli, thank you for sharing. I can’t imagine what you’ve been through. It’s a wonderful thing when a poem can capture our experiences in just a few short lines.
      I recently read your post about visiting your son’s grave and was taken aback by your courage and ability to write with such beauty.

  2. hello! might be off-topic, but I just wanted to stop by and tell you I find your blog completely lovely! I am also crazy for cooking, so I enjoy every post you make – either it’s about food or anything else!
