A Time to Be Still

Everything in the garden is lovely.

And if what is of earth forgets you,
Say to that earth of silence: I flow.
Say to the rushing waters: I am.

This comes at the very end of book two of Rilke’s Sonnet to Orpheus

  1. Thankyou Rev Mugo. Losing someone brought me into great bitterness. I used to think I had to stop that, to get over it and wanted so much to heal. Now i see it as just something that is and try not to judge it. I hope i am doing right. There’s nothing more I can do.
