Sonnets to Orpheus, Part Two, XII

Want the change. Be inspired by the flame
where everything shines as it disappears.
The artist, when sketching, loves nothing so much
as the curve of the body as it turns away.

What locks itself in sameness has congealed.
Is it safer to be gray and numb?
What turns hard becomes rigid
and is easily shattered.

Pour yourself out like a fountain.
Flow into the knowledge that what you are seeking
finishes often at the start, and, with ending, begins.

Every happiness is the child of a separation
it did not think it could survive. And Daphne, becoming
a laurel,
dares you to become the wind.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke ~

Want the change. Be inspired by the flame…

…where everything shines…

…as it disappears…

…The artist, when sketching, loves nothing so much…

…as the curve of the body as it turns away…

…What locks itself in sameness has congealed…

…Is it safer to be gray and numb?…

…What turns hard becomes rigid and is easily shattered…

…Pour yourself out like a fountain…

…Flow into the knowledge that what you are seeking…

…finishes often at the start, and, with ending, begins…

…Every happiness is the child of separation…

…it did not think it could survive…

…And Daphne, becoming a laurel,…

…dares you to become the wind.
