Bring That Sheet In!

from sarge lacuesta, literary editor of the philippines free press. please come.

and from ma'am marjorie evasco, this lovely quote she forwarded me this morning:

"the only courage that is demanded of us: to have courage for the most extraordinary, the most singular, and the most inexplicable that we may encounter." -- RM Rilke

A Walk

My eyes already touch the sunny hill.
going far ahead of the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
it has inner light, even from a distance-

and charges us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on
answering our own wave...
but what we feel is the wind in our faces.

translated by Robert Bly

Rainer Maria Rilke
