see me through

How sad the world is,

so beautiful,

yet so absurd.

~Irene Nemirovsky

when the pretty ones lay their burdens down….

inquiry for today~ full moon calls you out to pray…..

how will I heal?

I will become the madman running to see the moon in the window,

the hawk I saw tracing the cliff edge above the river.

I will be the man I have pursued all along and finally caught.

I will be all my intuitions and all my desires

and then I will walk slowly down the steps as if dressed in white

and wade into the water for a second baptism.

I will be like someone who cannot hide their love

but my joy will become ordinary and everyday and like a lover

I will find out exactly what it is like to be the happiest,

the only one in creation to really understand how much,

I’m just a hair’s breadth from dying.

~David Whyte
