Things that Please

Losing too is still ours; and even forgetting

still has a shape in the kingdom of transformation.

When something’s let go of, it circles; and though we are

rarely the center

of the circle, it draws around us its unbroken, marvelous

curve.

-Rainer Maria Rilke, For Hans Carossa

 
Sweet Heart by Allyson Johnson
Samurai’s Life by Budi Satria Kwan

"Holding this soft, small living creature in my lap this way, though, and seeing how it slept with complete trust in me, I felt a warm rush in my chest. I put my hand on the cat’s chest and felt his heart beating. The pulse was faint and fast, but his heart, like mine, was ticking off the time allotted to his small body with all the restless earnestness of my own."

-Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
