Deep in the darkness is God

candle

I come home from the soaring

in which I lost myself,

I was song, and the refrain which is God

is still roaring in my ears.

Now I am still

and plain:

no more words.

To others I was like a wind:

I made them shake

I’d gone very far, as far as the angels,

and high, where light thins into nothing.

But deep in the darkness is God.

– Rainer Maria Rilke
