haiku 13

Carving a seat in your heart
So brilliance can sit.

— by  k. jaffe (etymolgy, entomology, haiku,)
“Everywhere transience is plunging into the depths of Being… It is our task to imprint this temporary, perishable earth into ourselves so deeply, so painfully and passionately, that its essence can rise again, “invisibly,” inside us.

Rainer Maria Rilke

"In the Clouds" by Michael Perry

“Refuse all cooperation with the heart’s death.”

“If you could only see what you’re not seeing! If you could only take in all the complex layers of horrors that lie just beyond your range of sight. If you could only see the world as it really is: it is awful, and on fire, and beautiful.”
