Oh thank you, that's just beautiful.
"Wild freedom and the homing instinct"? That's good! Do you mean the seasons of distance may be a natural part of a cycle which includes times of return to nearness, comfortable intimacy? I hope so.
Mary Oliver's work is now on my "want" book list.

Jim Gordon

Hello Hermina - yes Mary Oliver is well worth making a friend. Most times I need some reorientation, new perspective, or just life affirming words, she seldom fails. deep thought and feeling, unsentimental but genuine, and the consciousness that she sees and enables to see the beauty and mystery and gift that life is. And she understands sorrow as few contemporary poets do - without being depressingly bleak, or annoyingly flippant. Enjoy her.
