“Ode to beautiful light.” Yellow grasses and family photo session at Discovery Park in Seattle, WA

I shared a photo from my recent family photo session with my friend, Martha. She responded: “Great shot! This reminds me of a Rilke poem, she added, translated by Robert Bly called, “A Walk.” Then she quoted the poem:

“My eyes already touch the sunny hill,
going far ahead of the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
it has inner light, even from a distance –
and changes us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on
answering our own wave…
but what we feel is the wind in our faces”.

 Thank you Martha and thank you Rainer Maria Rilke.
