AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Always.

van Gogh, Wheatfield Under Cloudy Sky, 1890


You Will Remember

You will remember that leaping stream
where sweet aromas rose and trembled,
and sometimes a bird, wearing water
and slowness, its winter feathers.

You will remember those gifts from the earth:
indelible scents, gold clay,
weeds in the thicket and crazy roots,
magical thorns like swords.

You'll remember the bouquet you picked,
shadows and silent water,
bouquet like a foam-covered stone.

That time was like never, and like always.
So we go there, where nothing is waiting;
we find everything waiting there.


- Pablo Neruda
