Sweet Darkness

David Whyte_Quote_Aloneness

I have chosen a poem by David Whyte to finish this month’s theme of stillness and silence. He is an incredible poet and I find so much inspiration in his beautiful musings. You can find more of his works at http://www.davidwhyte.com/

I hope you enjoy Sweet Darkness as much as I do. I think it is the perfect summation of all I have spoken about over the month and very apt as we move further into the dark winter.

With love and light,

Sweet Darkness

When your eyes are tired
the world is tired also.

When your vision has gone
no part of the world can find you.

Time to go into the dark
where the night has eyes
to recognize its own.

There you can be sure
you are not beyond love.

The dark will be your womb
tonight.

The night will give you a horizon
further than you can see.

You must learn one thing.
The world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn

anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive

is too small for you.

David Whyte
