AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

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

Widening.

Gallen-Kallela, Lake Keitele, 1905


I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world.
I may not complete this last one
but I give myself to it.


I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I've been circling for thousands of years
and I still don't know: am I a falcon,
a storm, or a great song?


Rainer Maria Rilke
