I believe in all that has never yet been spoken.
I want to free what waits within me
so that what no one has dared to wish for

may for once spring clear

without my contriving.

If this is arrogant, God, forgive me,

but this is what I need to say.
May what I do flow from me like a river,
no forcing and no holding back,
the way it is with children.

Then in these swelling and ebbing currents,

these deepening tides moving out, returning,
I will sing you as no one ever has,

streaming through widening channels

into the open sea.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke ~

  1. Trista, Thank you for your thoughtful comment on my things forgotten. We must be on a cosmic lay line or is it just the way the world is going but your last two posts are exactly what I was trying to express. They gave me even more grist for the mill and for that I send you light and joy.
