31 Aug meant to be
This poem by David Whyte has been on my mind since my trip to Oregon. The amazing Myriam left it on the wall for us when she left early for her flight. And then darling Jen Gray’s shared it on her blog. I have read it over and over. It speaks to me in a way that is almost indescribable.
When your eyes are tired the world is tired also.
When your vision has gone no part of the world can find you.
Time to go into the dark where the night has eyes to recognize its own.
There you can be sure you are not beyond love.
The dark will be your womb tonight.
The night will give you a horizon further than you can see.
You must learn one thing. The world was meant to be free in.
Give up all the other worlds except the one to which you belong.
Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you…
Is there something that has moved you lately? To tears? To laughter? Whatever it may be, let’s see your best shot today.
