A Desert Christmas Day

The morning sun drives rays
of light through the canyon peaks.
The wind is beginning to pick-up
pushing parts of the sky together
opening windows to the heavens
through which life’s passions erupt in
stories becoming the makings of myths.

Surely all art is the result of one’s having been in danger,
of having gone through an experience all the way to the end,
where no one can go any further.

— Rainer Maria Rilke

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart —
Try to love the questions themselves.

Do not now seek the answers which cannot be given
Because you would not be able to live them.

And the point is . . . To live everything.
Live the question now.

Perhaps you will then gradually (without noticing it)
Live along some distant day into the answer.”

— Rainer Maria Rilke

“Be patient toward all that

is unsolved in your heart

and try to love the questions themselves,

like locked rooms and like books that

are now written in a very foreign tongue.

Do not now seek the answers,

which cannot be given you because

you would not be able to live them.

And the point is,

to live everything.

Live the questions now.

Perhaps you will then gradually,

without noticing it,

live along some distant day

into the answer.”

— Rainer Maria Rilke

“After all, works of art are always the result of one’s having been in danger,
of having gone through an experience all the way to the end,
to where no one can go any further. The further one goes, the more private,
the more personal, the more singular an experience becomes
and the thing one is making is, finally, the necessary, irrepressible,
and, as nearly as possible, definitive utterance of this singularity…”

— Rainer Maria Rilke
