NaPoWriMo Day 11 Questions


How can you be? 



You ask too many questions, 

I just am. 

I just be. 



Today I wrote North Sea Woman #2 
but it is too personal to post.  

It asks the questions I could never ask someone. 

I shared it on a WhatsApp writing group I am part of... my safe space for writing and sharing...a friend replied with a quote from a poet I had never heard of...
so I will share...

Rilke from Letters to a young poet. 

I want to beg you, as much as I can... to be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.
