Widening Circles

My life…


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

I circle around God, that primordial tower.
I have been circling for thousands of year,
and I still don’t know: Am I a falcon,
a storm, or a great song?
     ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
