Poem for the week by the Irish poet Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin and is called Swineherd.

When all this is over, said the swineherd,
I mean to retire, where
Nobody will have heard about my special skills
And conversation is mainly about the weather.

I intend to learn how to make coffee, as least as well
As the Portuguese lay-sister in the kitchen
And polish the brass fenders every day.
I want to lie awake at night
Listening to cream crawling to the top of the jug
And the water lying soft in the cistern.

I want to see an orchard where the trees grow in straight lines
And the yellow fox finds shelter between the navy-blue trunks,
Where it gets dark early in summer
And the apple-blossom is allowed to wither on the bough.

Poem for the week is by meditation teacher and writer Paramananda and is called In Memoriam

In Memoriam

I cannot explain to you
The craft of sitting still.
How the old alchemist would understand
How the body becomes
The vessel and the crucible

How in apparent inactivity and containment
It burst open
Like the wild grass popping in the Californian sun

Do you remember?
That minimal symphony
Under the salt blue sky
On a high slope,
facing an imagining Ocean,
In the Santa Cruz mountains.

Poem for the week is by David Whyte and is called Enough.

Enough. These few words are enough.
If not these words, this breath.
If not this breath, this sitting here.
This opening to life
we have refused
again and again
until now.
Until now.
David Whyte

Poem for the week by Pablo Neruda, called The Horses
#poem #pabloneruda #berlin

From the window I saw the horses.

I was in Berlin, in winter. The light
had no light, the sky had no heaven.

The air was white like wet bread.

And from my window a vacant arena,
bitten by the teeth of winter.

Suddenly driven out by a man,
ten horses surged through the mist.

Like waves of fire, they flared forward
and to my eyes filled the whole world,
empty till then. Perfect, ablaze,
they were like ten gods with pure white hoofs,
with manes like a dream of salt.

Their rumps were worlds and oranges.
Their color was honey, amber, fire.

Their necks were towers
cut from the stone of pride,
and behind their transparent eyes
energy raged, like a prisoner.

There, in silence, at mid-day,
in that dirty, disordered winter,
those intense horses were the blood
the rhythm, the inciting treasure of life.

I looked. I looked and was reborn:
for there, unknowing, was the fountain,
the dance of gold, heaven
and the fire that lives in beauty.

I have forgotten that dark Berlin winter.
I will not forget the light of the horses.
