Circling

Storm coming in off the sea,  Maine.
Terce

I live my life in growing orbits
Which move out over things of the world.
Perhaps I can never achieve the last,
but that will be my attempt.

I am circling around God, the ancient tower,
and I have been circling for a thousand years,
and I still don't know if I am a falcon, or a storm,
or a great song.

~ Rilke

Taken from The Soul of the World, A Modern Book of Hours

Sometimes it is good to fall to other people to articulate a place of prayer, this Lent I am having a harder time connecting to the passages and Rilke's image of circling felt right. We are about to enter into holiday for the kids and I need to be a centered, creative mama. I am searching for that feeling after a huge storm, energized and refreshed.
