I Want To Believe I Am Looking

Still, what I want in my life
is to be willing
to be dazzled -
to cast aside the weight of facts

and maybe even
to float a little
above this difficult world.
I want to believe I am looking

into the white fire of a great mystery.
I want to believe that the imperfections
are nothing -
that the light is everything.

-Mary Oliver, "The Ponds"
