I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world
I may not ever complete the last one,
but I give myself to it.
I circle around God, that primordial tower.
I have been circling for a thousand years ,
and I still don’t know; am I a falcon, a storm, or a great song?
-Ranier Maria Rilke
I came across this beautiful poem by Rainier Maria Rilke while looking for a gift a few years ago and it really knocked me out.
The first line of the poem above reminds me of a quote I heard years ago: “If you’re making waves, you’re under way.”
