There’s a soft spot in everything

Our fingers touch,
                                      the one place where everything breaks
When we press it just right.
The past is like that with its arduous edges and blind sides,
The whorls of our fingerprints
                                                              embedded along its walls
Like fossils the sea has left behind.

—Charles Wright, from “Two Stories,” The Other Side of the River (Random House, 1984)

"And when old words die out on the tongue,
new melodies break forth from the heart;
and where the old tracks are lost,
new country is revealed with its wonders."

"

So come to the pond,
or the river of your imagination,
or the harbour of your longing,

and put your lips to the world.

And live
your life.
