As you might have realized, Mary Oliver and her poems have the great impact on me. Especially this one from “Felicity” reminds me of the loss of a great friend who used to love me to space and beyond. I had called her weeks before she passed away and told her, “Meet me for Lunch in New York City, I have a good news for you”. The week I was about to meet her, I got the saddest news that she passed away. I know this feeling. I know this coldness. May almighty God bless her soul.
