Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: The Sound of Feathers

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: The Sound of Feathers
I will never forget your care,
how you stared into me the way
a painter might peer into a canyon.

You saw a great vastness in me,
where I felt only a great emptiness.

You taught me how to feel
that emptiness as the
shimmer of being.

This is the quiet gift of love:
to be shown who we truly are by another
who, when you say, “I have nothing left,”
says, “But what of this magnificent sun
rising within you?”



A Question to Walk With: Describe your experience of emptiness. How does it greet you? What does it say to you? What have you learned from it?

This is from my book of poems in progress, Unseeable Masters.
