LET’S TALK

Good morning campbellsworld visitors.
This morning I want to try and engage you in conversation.
The following is a poem I picked up from the Panhala Email list.
Read it, think about it, and tell me what it means to you.
What thoughts come to mind?
What feelings come forth when you read?
How does it inspire you?

See the poem below, and answer in the comments section.

If you dare, share.

Of Being

I know this happiness
is provisional:

the looming presences—
great suffering, great fear—

withdraw only
into peripheral vision:

but ineluctable this shimmering
of wind in the blue leaves:

this flood of stillness
widening the lake of sky:

this need to dance,
this need to kneel:

this mystery:

~ Denise Levertov ~
