moth-butterfly-insect-88365-l“So you must not be frightened if a sadness rises up before you larger than any you have ever seen…life has not forgotten you, that it holds you in its hand; it will not let you fall.”

-Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

You might be going through a challenge that you think is NEVER going to end.

You might think that today is going to be “same old, same old,” nothing changes.

Perhaps you are hurt. Tired, sad or bereft.

Life cannot get you down, dear reader. Life is holding you “in its hand,” caringly, lovingly, tenderly. Embrace the beautiful sense of Life, caring for us all!

Rainer Maria Rilke (December 4, 1875 – December 29, 1926) was a Bohemian-Austrian poet is considered one of the significant poets in the German language and contributed greatly to French poetry as well. His best known works are Duino Elegies, Letters to a Young Poet and the semi-autobiographical The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge, his only novel.

Rilke’s early verse, short stories, and plays are characterized by their romanticism. Some of his works express the poet’s growing doubts about whether anything existed that was superior to mankind and his world. Rilke’s reason for writing poetry was to find the deeper meaning in life through art, he wrote in both verse and lyrical prose. (Bio Source: R.M.Rilke)
