Today’s guest poet  —  Rainer Maria Rilke

Sense of Something Coming

I am like a flag in the center of open space.
I sense ahead the wind which is
coming, and must live
it through.
while the things of the world still do
not move:
the doors still close softly, and the chimneys are full
of
silence,
the windows do not rattle yet, and the dust still lies
down.

I already know the storm, and I am troubled as the sea.
I leap
out, and fall back,
and throw myself out, and am absolutely alone
in the
great storm.

Quote of the day: “Forget those who have forgotten you when you really needed them and remember those who have made you smile when you were down”  —  Anonymous

Daily gratitudes:
Christine making me laugh
The homeless guys sitting in the river drinking beer, waving at me and telling me it was paradise
Feathers
Icy cold water in the middle of the night
Seafoam green
