David Whyte: Enough


Patra with island

Enough. These few words are enough.
If not these words, this breath.
If not this breath, this sitting here.
This opening to the life
We have refused
Again and again
Until now.
Until now.

I just learned of this poem by David Whyte. It seems perfectly written for the Patra Passage. Even the shape of the words form a bowl.
