Rainy Day Writing

Writing, Reading, Inspirations and Aspirations


I learned not to fear infinity,

The far field, the windy cliffs of forever,

The dying of time in the white light of tomorrow,

The wheel turning away from itself,

The sprawl of the wave,

The on-coming water.


Mt. Rainier National Park

from The Far Field by Theodore Roethke
