Today is the Fourth Annual Bloggers Silent Poetry Reading. In the spirit of this day and my literature background, here is a poem by my favorite poet, Rainer Maria Rilke

Moving Forward

The deep parts of my life pour onward,
as if the river shores were opening out.
It seems that things are more like me now, 
That I can see farther into paintings. 
I feel closer to what language can't reach.
With my senses, as with birds, I climb
into the windy heaven, out of the oak,
in the ponds broken off from the sky
my falling sinks, as if standing on fishes.

Post any poem that moves you...
