all are inscribed

I have found
A myriad particles
And each is all
That can ever be told,
But all are inscribed
With a signature
That I cannot read . . .

Each is the presence of the all,
And all things bear the signature
Of one unfathomable thought
Lucid as universal light ...

— Kathleen Raine, from "On a Shell-strewn Beach" as remembered by Wendell Berry in Imagination in Place, "Against the Nihil of the Age"

  1. Each is the presence of the all. That's so beautiful, Ruth, as is your image.


Welcome. If you would like to say something, rest assured that I will respond in my self, even if I do not respond in word.
