Beautiful work, beautiful image. I am always pleased to see their is a new post here.

Rilke's poem truly resonates with what I have been experiencing lately - "Flare up like a flame and make big shadows I can move in" - I think I am ready to ignite!


Ah girlfriend... You pick the best quotes ever. This one left me a bit tied up in the throat...

the stones are beautiful by the way.



I have not read any Rilke for a while...thank you for posting this poem...and for the message as well.



What a beautiful poem and image.
There is so much here - I love the idea of God speaking to us in our creation and then quieting into a dim voice we have to be open to in order to hear. And the idea that life begins when we go to the edge of our longings - I know that is the truth.

Thanks for all the light you bring into the world with your candles and your writing.



This quote is making my heart warm through and through. Thank you for sharing this. ; )

Beautiful post!

Thank you for this idea of the Sacred Life Sunday. I look forward to posting to my blog each week. I love finding the sacred in my every day life and chronicalling it.


I love that post! So beautiful!

I love Rilke but never read this poem. Now I'm going to have to pin it to the inspiration board over my desk to remind me...
