The Family of Things (Thank You, Mary Oliver)

Use arrow keys to walk around and interact. There are no other controls. :-)

This game/poem takes 5 minutes to play.

It's my first Bitsy creation, I made it in one day upon learning that Mary Oliver had passed away. Her work celebrates the beauty of the natural world and our place in it. Despite anguish and strife and everything that life throws our way, there's so much we can learn from, and so much that can heal us in simple nature.

Wild Geese is a short poem, and if you've never read it, please take a chance.  Here you can find it in English or French, and here Oliver reads it aloud.

I took a day to soak in it and try and reconfigure it. I hope the beauty is there for you.  <3
