Keeping still.

If we were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving,
and for once could do nothing,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves
and of threatening ourselves with death.

(From “Keeping Still” by Pablo Neruda” : I’m not sure if this is only an excerpt or the entire poem. If anybody knows better, please write in.)

  1. Good instinct, it’s only a small part of one of the best poems in existence.
