“Trees are the earth’s endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.”

– Rabindranath Tagore

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

Quotation by Rabindranath Tagore

Silence

(Keep me fully glad…” by Rabindranath Tagore)

Keep me fully glad with nothing. 

Only take my hand in your hand. 

In the gloom of the deepening night take up my heart

and play with it as you wish.  Bind me close to you

with nothing. I will spread myself out at your feet and lie still.

Under this clouded sky I will meet silence with silence.

I will become one with the night clasping the earth in my breast.

Make my life glad with nothing. The rains sweep the sky

from end to end. Jasmines in the wet untamable wind revel

in their own perfume. The cloud-hidden stars thrill in secret.

Let me fill to the full my heart with nothing but my own depth of joy.

"Featherheart"
was chosen as
the name for
this blog
because when
I remember
to keep my
heart light as
a feather,
life is much
easier.
