Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Poetry for the Last Sunday of September

Stream water2

I have come to a still, but not a deep center,
A point outside the glittering current;
My eyes stare at the bottom of a river,
At the irregular stones, iridescent sandgrains,
My mind moves in more than one place,
In a country half-land, half-water.

I am renewed by death, thought of my death,
The dry scent of a dying garden in September,
The wind fanning the ash of a low fire.
What I love is near at hand,
Always, in earth and air.

~  Theodore Roethke, from The Far Field
