John O'Donohue - For Freedom (Fragment)

                      ..............

As the ocean absolves itself
Of the expectation of land,
Approaching only
In the form of waves
That fill and pleat and fall
With such gradual elegance
As to make of the limit
A sonorous threshold
Whose music echoes back among
The give and strain of memory,
Thus may your heart know the patience
That can draw infinity from limitation.

      .............

-- from To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings, by John O'Donohue
