Day 21, Morning Sky

I live my life in growing orbits,
which move out from the things of this world.
Perhaps I can never achieve the last,
but that will be my attempt.
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.

--Rainer Maria Rilke (tr. Robert Bly)
