One Single Impression: Rest

Host unlimited photos at slide.com for FREE!

I am ready to rest,
To lie down with my
Eyes wide open
And let the beautiful world
And all its glorious light
Into the cool and dark,
The deep and empty spaces,
Until I am full and complete
No longer the clay of this earth
But the song.

  1. Another great post with profound words.
    For me the great event of this week is the World Youth Day in Sydney with Pope Benedetto XVI.

  5. 'To lie down with my eyes wide open' sounds so refreshing and renewing. Usually by the time I get to bed I'm completely done in!

  6. How wonderful to allow the clay to be so molded as to become a form with the ability to be so open; to accept the light in all of its depths.
