Mary Oliver Mashup Journey Poetry



It isn’t very far as highways lie (“Going to Walden”)
Traversing over land or sea or sky
The journey isn’t measured by the miles
But by the wondrous ways that it beguiles

I know I can walk through the world
Along the shore or under the trees (“I Happened to Be Standing”)
As brand new perspectives unfurl
Every moment this sojourn to seize

   -Kim Johnson, using borrowed lines from Mary Oliver’s poetry as noted
