Lightly child, lightly.

water-breathe

day after day:

bright,

wretched,

endlessly fragile.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke, from The Poetry of Rilke; “Sonnets to Orpheus

  3. Picture so still
    as if unreal at will
    no breathing
    no pain
    no ripples
    no tears
    no fears…
    more docile than fragile
