Poetry Friday: "All That Is Glorious Around Us"

Head over to Irene Latham's blog, Live Your Poem, 
for this week's round-up of poetic goodness. 
Thanks, Irene, for hosting this week!

Margaret encouraged us to write about ordinary saints yesterday for Spiritual Journey Thursday. Thinking about that post led me to Barbara Crooker's celebration of "...this radiant world..." and these favorite lines from her poem, "All that is Glorious Around Us."
"...watching the red and gold leaves race down the street,
confetti from autumn's bright parade...."

Click on the poem's title to read the entire poem, shared at The Writer's Almanac. I hope you'll find much to celebrate in this radiant world of ours!


  1. Radiant is one of the best words ever! Thank you for this glorious post, Ramona. Also, that is one gorgeous tree! xo

  2. What a wonderful reminder to be on the lookout for the small beauties in our world. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Love, love this & I loved your pictures on Instagram today, too, Ramona. Oh, how radiant fall is! In the poem, I adore than Crooker, a favorite of mine, refers to Mary Oliver. That part about nature is something to remember, too. Thank you!

  4. What beautiful lines....ever more beautiful the longer I've lived. Thank you for the gift of them.

  5. That is a gorgeous photo - and such lovely verse, too. Thank you! :)

  6. This poem and your photograph are just all so beautiful. Thank you.
