This thing of Darkness

I acknowledge mine --- Prospero, The Tempest, Shakespeare          

To go into the dark with a light is to know the light.

To know the dark, go dark.

Go without sight and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,

and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.--- Wendell Berry

Whom should I turn to, if not the one whose darkness is darker than night,

the only one who keeps vigil with no candle, and is not afraid

—the deep one, whose being I trust, for it breaks through the earth into trees,

and rises when I bow my head, faint as a fragrance from the soil.--- Rainer Maria Rilke
