Be patient toward all that is unsolved . . .   1 comment

“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

I wonder what she was thinking —

I can imagine but never know.

All I Have Is A Voice   Leave a comment

Sherman Robinson-Edit-1-72Sherman Robertson (Houston, TX, 05-11-04)– Image by kenne

All I have is a voice
To undo the folded lie,
The romantic lie in the brain
Of the sensual man-in-the-street
And the lie of Authority
Whose buildings grope the sky:
There is no such thing as the State
And no one exists alone;
Hunger allows no choice
To the citizen or the police;
We must love one another or die.

Defenseless under the night
Our world in stupor lies;
Yet, dotted everywhere,
Ironic points of light
Flash out wherever the Just
Exchange their messages:
May I, composed like them
Of Eros and of dust,
Beleaguered by the same
Negation and despair,
Show an affirming flame.

— from September 1, 1939, by W. H. Auden

Though they’re familiar town and city birds, American Robins are at
home in wilder areas, too, including mountain forests.

 its exquisitely scented flower opens as night falls, then closes forever with the first rays of the morning sun.

A Sort Of A Song
Let the snake wait under
his weed
and the writing
be of words, slow and quick, sharp
to strike, quiet to wait,
sleepless.
—through metaphor to reconcile
the people and the stones.
Compose. (No ideas
but in things) Invent!
Saxifrage is my flower that splits
the rocks.

William Carlos Williams
