    Last Night the Rain Spoke to Me
    by Mary Oliver

    Last night
    the rain
    spoke to me
    slowly, saying,
    what joy

    to come falling
    out of the brisk cloud,
    to be happy again
    in a new way
    on the earth!

    That’s what it said
    as it dropped,
    smelling of iron,
    and vanished

    like a dream of the ocean
    into the branches
    and the grass below.

    Then it was over.

    The sky cleared.
    I was standing
    under a tree.

    The tree was a tree
    with happy leaves,
    and I was myself,

    and there were stars in the sky
    that were also themselves
    at the moment
    at which moment

    my right hand
    was holding my left hand
    which was holding the tree
    which was filled with stars

    and the soft rain –
    imagine! imagine!
    the long and wondrous journeys
    still to be ours.

Ink is handicapped, in a way, because you can blow up a man with gunpowder in half a second, while it may take twenty years to blow him up with a book. But the gunpowder destroys itself along with its victim, while a book can keep on exploding for centuries."

    If corals get stressed they die, so if I was coral I would be dead 

    what do coral even get stressed about

    Current events

    I sea.

    guys, i work at an aquarium and my coworkers and i have literally laughed at this for three days straight. everytime we pass each other we whisper “current events” and crack up. our customers think we are nuts.

    Dearest Ronnie: this one’s for you <3
