corner view:: evening

The Corner View this week is "Evening". We lie in white drifts and cold winds after quite the snowstorm. But we are cozy and warm inside.

You darkness, that I come from,
I love you more than all the fires
that fence in the world,
for the fire makes
a circle of light for everyone,
and then no one outside learns of you.

But the darkness pulls in everything;
shapes and fires, animals and myself,
how easily it gathers them!—
powers and people—
and it is possible a great energy
is moving near me.
I have faith in nights.

- Rainer Maria Rilke

For more corner views, visit Jane at Spain Daily.

We are chilly here too and hoping for more rain, being in a level 2 drought is no fun. :(
