Artist's Description

The hour is striking so close above me,
so clear and sharp,
that all my senses ring with it.
I feel it now: there’s a power in me
to grasp and give shape to my world.

I know that nothing has ever been real
without my beholding it.
All my becoming has needed me.
My looking ripens things
and they come toward me, to meet and be met.”

~ Rainer Maria Rilke
from Rilke’s Book of Hours
(translated by Johanna Macy & Anita Barrows)
