    Mary Oliver can do no wrong in her poetry She is one of my favorite voices reflecting on nature reflecting on relationships She is happy to live a life that isn't well traveled but rather one that notices that breathesThis book of essays reflects that philosophy Some are on home some are on other writers some are on scrambled turtle eggs I was cooing over the beautiful writing on the plane much to my seatmates' chagrin This wou

Comprising a selection of essays Upstream finds beloved poet Mary Oliver reflecting on her astonishment and admiration for the natural world and the craft of writing  As she contemplates the pleasure of artistic labor finding solace and safety w. I have a weird relationship with Mary Oliver I own and have read several of her books Most of them are poetry but a couple of them are essay collections as Upstream is I generally like most of her books and it excites me to see someone making some kind of a living off selling poetry Though where Ms Oliver lives a beaver hut is yet to be determined by meSometimes when I m reading her work I m smiling or nodding and really feeling groovy For instance in this collection she ponders poetry I learned from Whitman that the poem is a temple or a green field a place to enter and in which to feel Only in a secondary way is it an intellectual thing an artifact a moment of seemly and robust wordiness wonderful as that part of it is I learned that the poem was made not just to exist but to speak to be companyAnd creativity The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work who felt their own creative power restive and uprising and gave to it neither power nor timeAnd when I m reading lines like these I feel like Ms Oliver is a kindred spirit and I feel proud of her writing and long career But then she ll start talking about those open mouthed kisses that she plants on trees and sticks and animals and whatnot and it puts into my mind that bizarre moment from Elizabeth Gilbert s memoir Eat Pray Love when at a yoga camp or wherever the hell she was she suddenly mounts a tree and initiates foreplay Folks I love nature but I love it the way EB White loved it the way that Larry McMurtry and his characters love nature As in Damn would you just look at that view So after a few of these open mouthed expressions of nature devotion I came to these lines dear God please let someone be reading this review right now because I need some hand holding hereOnce I put my face against the body of our cat as she lay with her kittens and she did not seem to mind So I pursed my lips against that full moon and I tasted the rich river of her bodySay what now Wha I literally read these two sentences about ten times in a row then brought the book to my husband and read them aloud and asked Is she saying what I think she s saying My husband s face recoiled in a grimace and he said What in hell are you readingExactly I m sorry Ms Oliver there s some good stuff here and I love Walt Whitman and Ralph Waldo Emerson too but I gotta draw the line somewhereAnd please stay away from my cats
