today’s feature is a poignant poem from Women in Praise of the Sacred edited by Jane Hirshfield

from The Walls Do Not Fall

by H.D. (hilda doolittle, 1886-1961)

In no wise is the pillar-of-fire
that went before

different from the pillar-of-fire
that comes after;

chasm, schism in consciousness, 
must be bridged over;

we are each, householder,
each with a treasure;

now is the time to revalue
our secret hoard …
