Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground. - Rumi

Poetic Inspiration from Rainer Maria Rilke

The Hour is Striking
By Rainer Maria Rilke

The hour is striking so close above me,
So clear and sharp,
That all my senses ring with it.
I feel it now: there’s a power in me
to grasp and give shape to my world.

I know that nothing has ever been real
without my beholding it.
All becoming has needed me.
My looking ripens things
and they come toward me, to meet and be met.

I recently found this poem and fell in love with it.
Happy March, spring is around the corner, 
the air is sweet with possabilities.
