On the way to London
Thoughts come now - quickly I must write.
"Rachel Getting Married" - the movie on board flight.
It filled my head with wonder at the grace that must befall,
such a simple human heartbeat while one's back's against the wall.
We find our way through step by step,
As each heart beat sets it's pace.
A spark, a bud, a trickle - there really is no race.
So take your 'practiced powers' as Rilke writes with skill.
It's more than human wisdom.
More than mind at will.
Align yourself with God, my dear,
for life is very short.
Then joy will come to life, my dear,
to practice, like your art.
