"From tomorrow onwards, become a blissful man
Feed horses, chop firewood, traverse the world
From tomorrow onwards, care for grain and vegetables
I have a house, facing the sea, with spring blossoms.

From tomorrow onwards, write letters to each of my loved ones
Tell them about my happiness;
What that spark of bliss told me
I shall recount to every single one of them

Give every winding river and every mountain an endearing name

Stranger, I too wish you happiness
I wish for you a glittering path ahead
I wish for you to meet your lover, make a home
I wish for you to receive happiness in this world

I only wish to face the sea, with spring blossoms."

"Gradually, he grew distant from us, as though somewhat sad,
and strangely calm, as though he had discovered
something large and incommunicable—a headless statue, a star, a truth,
the one and only truth. We asked him what it was.
He wouldn’t speak. As Though he knew we were neither capable
nor willing to learn. We, his friends,
cast the first stones. His enemies couldn’t have been happier. At the trial
they questioned and cross-examined him. Still not a word. The chairman
beat his gavel, shouted, growing more and more angry— “Quiet! Quiet!
Don’t listen to this silence from the accused.” The verdict was unanimous.
One by one we turned and placed our foreheads against the wall."

"

April snow.
God is waiting in the garden.
Slow as a blush,

snow shifts and settles on God.
On God’s bouquet.
The trees are white nerve nets.

"
Anne Carson, “God’s Bouquet of Undying Love” (via words-in-lines)
