Just do it





From the earliest times, human civilization

has been no more than a strange luminescence growing more intense by the hour, of which no one can say when it will begin to wane and when it will fade away.

The earth, that is sufficient,

I do not want the constellations any nearer, I know they are very well where they are, I know they suffice for those who belong to them .

Faithful and virtuous night

At last the night surrounded me;
I floated on it, perhaps in it,
or it carried me as a river carries
a boat.

Louise Glück
Faithful and Virtuous Night



There are three things all wise men fear:

the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.

I am circling around God,

around the ancient tower, and I have been circling for a thousand years, and I still don't know if I am a falcon, or a storm, or a great song.

Poem (Hate Is Only One Of Many Responses)

Frank O'Hara



Hate is only one of many responses
true, hurt and hate go hand in hand
but why be afraid of hate, it is only there
think of filth, is it really awesome
neither is hate
don't be shy of unkindness, either
it's cleansing and allows you to be direct
like an arrow that feels something

out and out meanness, too, lets love breathe
you don't have to fight off getting in too deep
you can always get out if you're not too scared

an ounce of prevention's
enough to poison the heart
don't think of others
until you have thought of yourself, are true

all of these things, if you feel them
will be graced by a certain reluctance
and turn into gold

if felt by me, will be smilingly deflected
by your mysterious concern

from


Send me out into another life

lord because this one is growing faint
I do not think it goes all the way.

W.S. Merwin

Many are the strange chances of the world... and help

oft shall come from the hands of the weak when the Wise falter.
