Newborn-starry-hands

I thought I would count the stars –
My counting went on all night.
But I kept on losing the thread.
This morning I’ve understood
That only by not
Looking too closely,
Do we see a whole thing right.
Just look at the sea –
Don’t drive yourself crazy
Trying to scoop it out!

Rabindranath Tagore
Jottings, 160, page 98

Just look. That’s all. Just look. (At the stars, or the ocean, or her tiny-little-perfectly-formed-newborn-starry-hands). Breathe softly. Just look.

Wonder of Wonders. That’s All.
