*Again and again* · 20/02/2010

“Again and again, however we know the landscape of love
and the little churchyard there, with its sorrowing names,
and the frighteningly silent abyss into which the others
fall: again and again the two of us walk out together
under the ancient trees, lie down again and again
among the flowers, face to face with the sky.”

  1. Now
    you choose the must subtle, the purest, the most touching,the
    “Loveliest in my invisible landscape, you that made me more known to the invisible angels.”

  2. “Whoever reaches into a rosebush may seize a handful flowers; but no matter how many flowers one holds, it’s only a small portion of the whole. Nevertheless, a handful is enough to experience the nature of the flowers. Only if we refuse to reach into the bush, because we can’t possibly seize all the flowers at once, or if we spread out our handful of roses as if it were the whole of the bush itself – only then does it bloom apart from us, unknown to us, and we are left alone.”

  3. There are three Rilke poems that I consider “mine”: Der Panther, for it’s about me, I am too alone, for it’s about us, and Immer wieder, for again and again I fell into that frightening abyss while I just wanted to lie down face to face with the sky.
    It is the most beautiful.

  4. “Why should I be desperate while your presence still can fall upon me, gently as moonlight on a seat beside the window.”

  5. “Bring it back, bring it back
    don’t take it away from me
    Because you don’t know
    What it means to me “

    (Farrokh Bulsara’s breath-taking voice – no matter his way of life)
