i am a falcon. i am a storm. i am a great song.

stormfalcon

The title is a reference to a poem by Rilke:

I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world.
I may not complete this last one
but I give myself to it.

I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I’ve been circling for thousands of years
and I still don’t know: am I a falcon,
a storm, or a great song?

As someone I know is fond of saying, “Maybe it’s a both/and thing.” ¬†Or as someone else likes to say, “What’s this either/or shit?”
