Stone and star by hogret Stone and star by hogret
Evening

Evening slowly changes into garments
held for it like a silhouette of old trees;
you watch: and the land breaks away from you,
one part rising toward heaven, the other one falling;

and they leave you not really belonging anywhere,
not really as dark as that silent house,
and surely not really as sworn to eternity
as that which becomes a star each night and rises—

and they leave you wordlessly to untangle
your life, yearning and vast and ripe,
so that, now earthbound and now all-embracing,
there alternates in you stone and star.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke


Digital collage

An Allegory of Fortitude by Michele Tosini, called Michele di Ridolfo del Ghirlandaio (Florence 1503 - 1577) [link]

in what vastness do we find
the mislaid moments of our mind
can we weave with broken threads
all the colors in our head?

will we keep and understand
the bits of stone, that turn to sand
or will we discard the little things
the broken bits that caused us pain?

by what fire do tygers burn
in what dreams do hearts still yearn?
will this foundation forever stand?
or softly crumble...as a slow exhale?
