Sweet Darkness

The moon is in a waxing crescent phase currently, the perfect time to see the features on it’s surface.

As this moon phase marks a leave from darkness I thought it would be fitting to post one of my favorite poems “Sweet Darkness” by David Whyte.

 

When your eyes are tired

the world is tired also.

When your vision has gone,

no part of the world can find you.

Time to go into the dark

where the night has eyes

to recognize it’s own.

There you can be sure

you are not beyond love.

The dark will be your home

tonight.

The night will give you a horizon

Further than you can see.

The must learn one thing.

The world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds

except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes the sweet darkness and the sweet

confinement of your aloneness

to learn

anything or anyone

that does not bring you alive

is too small for you.
