The Poet: David Whyte, “Working Together”

“Working Together”

“We shape our self  
to fit this world
and by the world  
are shaped again.
The visible  
and the invisible
working together  
in common cause,
to produce  
the miraculous.
I am thinking of the way  
the intangible air
passed at speed  
round a shaped wing
easily  
holds our weight.
So may we, in this life  
trust
to those elements  
we have yet to see
or imagine,  
and look for the true
shape of our own self  
by forming it well
to the great  
intangibles about us.”

~ David Whyte
