"Let everything happen to you, beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final." -Rainer Rilke

René Karl Wilhelm Johann Josef Maria Rilke (4 December 1875 – 29 December 1926), better known as Rainer Maria Rilke was a Bohemian-Austrian poet and novelist. He is “widely recognized as one of the most lyrically intense German-language poets”. He wrote both verse and highly-lyrical prose. Several critics have described Rilke’s work as inherently “mystical”

Happy Water Day/Day of Mercury/Anything-goes-day.  Today is in praise of the mystical poets who were rudely criticized and misunderstood.  Really? Who criticizes poetry? That’s like being critical of the cadence of a person’s breath or the rhythm of their gait.  Oh, wait! I think I know who would do such a silly thing.  Those without the ability in their souls to hear music or to, themselves, sing.  We shall know them by their pointing fingers, then, and pity their deafness.  Amen.  /nf

  1. Haven’t read much if you my darling, as you know, but the timing of this, every word was perfection to my soul. Poets are misunderstood, I often am. But you worded this so beautifully, i am loving it very much
    Thank you so.❤️

    • Thank you Fiery! Yay! =) I have a hard time writing out my feelings especially on this blog where I represent other artists. But today I felt I had to say this and it seems you needed to hear it. *hugs* to you today. You are a masterful poet. You’re understood and always will be by those who understand magic and music. ♥.
