mad with love

Standard

So Every Day
By Mary Oliver

So every day
I was surrounded by the beautiful crying forth
of the ideas of God,

one of which was you.

What was God thinking when…

Rainbow birds evolved to grace this world?
Rainbow birds attracted the attention of falcons to be eaten?
Rainbow birds attracted the attention of humans to be captured, owned, caged, traded, sold, sacrificed, loved, and prayed to?
The cultures that first beheld the birds went extinct?
Rainbow birds went extinct?

God is in bird, human, birth, hatching, death, and extinction.

What was God thinking to bring about such madness?

What am I thinking? No matter. I’m mad with love.

Where are you mad with love?
