This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.
~Rumi, as quoted in Parker Palmer’s reflection on hospitality and welcoming the unexpected visitor.

somewhere i have never travelled,gladly beyond
any experience,your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near

your slightest look easily will unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully,mysteriously)her first rose

or if your wish be to close me, i and
my life will shut very beautifully ,suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility:whose texture
compels me with the color of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands

somewhere i have never travelled,gladly beyond by e.e. cummings (via inkywings)

just finished watching Inside Llewyn Davis for the first time (yeah yeah I know, I’m behind the times) and oh my gosh my goodness gracious me I’m in love

so much perfection

so much unff

I have too much I want to say about this film but I don’t want to ruin it with words

[unfinished] john updike might be proud

woman — even the word, a mouthful, that full, luscious
wwwwwoh and the mouth must hollow out inside
like making room for the entire earth to swallow deep

ohhhhhmmannnn a chant, a chance to breathe

woman — a warm and weighty word you could bury yourself,
deep inside that wonderful wommmmmmman word
like the plumpest duvet to wrap yourself, a cocoon

no man could fill so deep delicious

woman — full of curving letters and rounded sounds
yet none so curvy round sound as the real thing, woman,
if you want to talk of onomatopoeia and say it six times faster

than that deep delicious wwwwwwwwww

yet coquettish catty precocious pretty so much up and down,
hard edges hidden in the soft belly of the “o” and “a” and beneath
“m”s gentle rounded peaks; how can such cruel consonoants hide in

woman word so soft
