Words Like Women

Sounds of the Son

Give me words like women
Soft and forgiving
Tender and honest
Warm and willing

Let me write like water
Fresh and flowing
Pure and present
Vast and knowing

Help me sound like silence
Quiet and sincere
Peaceful and powerful
Purposeful and clear

I’m a falcon. A storm. Or an unfinished song?

Live & Learn

I live my life in growing orbits
which move out over the things of the world.
Perhaps I can never achieve the last,
but that will be my attempt.
I am circling around God,
around the ancient tower,
and I have been circling for a thousand years,
and still I don’t know
if I’m a falcon,
a storm,
or an unfinished song.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke, The Book of Hours
