what to remember when waking

20120110-063734.jpg

In that first
hardly noticed
moment
to which you wake,
coming back
to this life
from the other
more secret,
moveable
and frighteningly
honest
world
where everything
began,
there is a small
opening
into the new day
which closes
the moment
you begin
your plans.
– David Whyte, what to remember when waking

  • I am a friend of Jo’s and came here to see the delicious photos of your weekend retreat. Those were so lovely, I had to explore your place a bit more. You have the most wonderful web page/blog. Your photos are beautiful and the poetry you share was an unexpected gift. This one in particular will stay with me. Thank you.
