what to remember when waking


In that first
hardly noticed
to which you wake,
coming back
to this life
from the other
more secret,
and frighteningly
where everything
there is a small
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.
