Teresa Sharp

I live my life in growing rings

which move out over the things around me.

Perhaps I’ll never complete the last,

but that’s what I mean to try.

I’m circling around God, around the ancient tower,

and I’ve been circling thousands of years;

and I still don’t know: am I a falcon, a storm

or a great song.

                  -Rainer Maria Rilke
