Imperishable Quiet

Those who are willing to be vulnerable move among mysteries.

In this place of light: he dares to live
Who stops being a bird, yet beats his wings
Against the immense immeasurable emptiness of things.

A mind too active is no mind at all.

I long for the imperishable quiet at the heart
of form.

Quotes by Theodore Roethke
