a boundary to looking

Posted by Daniela Elza on Dec 06 2011

“For there is a boundary to looking.
And the world that is looked at so deeply
wants to flourish in love.

Work of the eyes is done, now
go and do heart-work
on all the images imprisoned within you; for you
overpowered them: but even now you don’t know them.”

—Rainer Maria Rilke
(from the poem Turning-point)
