Hi.

Really: 5 things I learned FROM today. Share with those you love (or even just kinda like).

POTD - The Panther by Rainer Maria Rilke

The Panther

by Rainer Maria Rilke

His vision, from the constantly passing bars,
has grown so weary that it cannot hold
anything else. It seems to him there are
a thousand bars; and behind the bars, no world.

As he paces in cramped circles, over and over,
the movement of his powerful soft strides
is like a ritual dance around a center
in which a mighty will stands paralyzed.

Only at times, the curtain of the pupils
lifts, quietly--. An image enters in,
rushes down through the tensed, arrested muscles,
plunges into the heart and is gone. 

The steady eye of RIlke and his ability to bring the invisible just to the edge of visibility have always made him some one I always feel I can feast on.
