„How small life is here
and how big nothingness.
The sky, tired of light,
has given everything to the snow.

The two trees bow
their heads to each other.
Clouds cross the world’s
silence in a circle dance“

„Everything has a crack in it; that's how the light gets in.“

—  Leonard Cohen, Selected Poems, 1956-1968
Context: Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in. "Anthem"

„I stood willingly and gladly in the characters of everything — other people, trees, clouds.“

—  Mary Oliver American writer 1935 - 2019
Context: I stood willingly and gladly in the characters of everything — other people, trees, clouds. And this is what I learned, that the world's otherness is antidote to confusion — that standing within this otherness — the beauty and the mystery of the world, out in the fields or deep inside books — can re-dignify the worst-stung heart. "Staying Alive"

Neither you nor I:
But when the trees bow down their heads
The wind is passing by.“
