"....have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

A promise kept...

Never an absolution
but a sense of freedom
that comes with the dawning of dawn,
the swishing and unnerved splashing of a river...
....down a silent mountain pass,
the first cries of the wild
that render a forest wide awake...
...distant yet almost close enough!

It could just be a sigh of a breeze
that’s perfectly cool enough
to settle on your skin...
...just as the warm splatter
of the first rays reflect off it…

Like the promise of a sunrise
no matter what weather
weathered your day last....
...A simple belief
in the journey ahead
although exactly to where it leads
is a mystery in itself..

The shadows call aloud
For you to stop and ponder
What am I leaving behind?
What do I carry with me now?
A lark you think it is..
Maybe…who knows?

The day passes as it always does
Waiting for none
Nor stopping for time…
...For neither is time kind enough
To stop for it.
And so you think
this too shall pass...
...For it has to
That’s the way it works!

Darkness sets in...
Just in time too
As the remaining light
lick the last rays out of the sky
eerie and calm at the same time
but this time
a queer sense of peace floats in...
...queer I call it
for it’s nothing like you’ve ever felt before
yet peaceful
Accompanied by a stillness
that feels peaceful
if you know what I mean…

it’s almost the end…
...end of another journey
in journey’s path
which you know will begin yet again
for you understand it’s
“Never an absolution
but a sense of freedom”
that comes and goes
but stays as a part of whole!
A silent promise ...
...always kept.
