The world is so filled with magic
that we’ve become blind to it.

One response so far

    …a good reminder from Rilke

    Silent friend of many distances, feel

    by Rainer Maria Rilke

    English version by Stephen Mitchell
    Original Language German

    Silent friend of many distances, feel
    how your breath enlarges all of space.
    Let your presence ring out like a bell
    into the night. What feeds upon your face

    grows mighty from the nourishment thus offered.
    Move through transformation, out and in.
    What is the deepest loss that you have suffered?
    If drinking is bitter, change yourself to wine.

    In this immeasurable darkness, be the power
    that rounds your senses in their magic ring,
    the sense of their mysterious encounter.

    And if the earthly no longer knows your name,
    whisper to the silent earth: I’m flowing.
    To the flashing water say: I am.
