I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world.
I may not complete this last one
but I give myself to it.
I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I’ve been circling for thousands of years
and I still don’t know.
Am I a falcon, a storm, or a great song?
~ Rainer Maria Rilke ~
