Man, falling

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;
Perhaps the earth can teach us
As when everything seems dead
And later proves to be alive.

Pablo Neruda
