See how in their veins all becomes spirit;

into each other they mature and grow.

Like axles, their forms tremblingly orbit,

round which it whirls, bewitching and aglow.

Thirsters, and they receive drink,

watchers, and see: they receive sight.

Let them into one another sink

so as to endure each other outright.

But we also write for ourselves. Hi there! I find the ctnoents of this post contradicting. The one i quote above simply conflicts with the title of the post Art for art's sake. I believe that this old catchphrase looming every now and then in the field of arts is also one of the most often misused and misunderstood. No one writes for writing's sake. As you said it, the minimum that one can do is to write for his's or her's sake, for someone's pleasure, for the sake of self-expression among others. Also, the most lingering pressure is the kind that comes from ourselves. When we write, we are hard-pressed to do something that is worth-reading, something that we can think can please ourselves and then other people. Yeah, so I am just saying this for discussion's sake. :) x x

A lot of spiritual wrteirs say that God is writing through them, that they are putting on paper (or the computer) what God wants to be said. I'm not sure if this is similar to what you mean. My writing comes from all directions in my head, heart and soul, which are full of overwhelming stimuli. When I write creatively, I put things together, make connections, use artistic devices if possible, read it all back, edit and find meaning. Each step of the writing process tells me something new, makes me think in different ways and allows me to learn. So in this way, yes, I become my own audience. I can't account for how it all happens, but I do believe writing is a spiritual process, among other things. God teaches me things about myself and the world through my writing, and I share what I can. But I don't think I'm transcribing God's word or anything like that.I had an amazing creative writing instructor when I attended community college Linda Portnay. She met the class at a poetry reading by a big-name poet who was appearing in Boston. After the reading, she asked us what we thought. In my unsophisticated way, I said, I thought he was arrogant. She said she understood and believed poets should be humble. To me, she was affirming that ego didn't have a place in writing, and that we all struggle with communication and words.That took place about 23 years ago. I remember my teacher's name. I have no idea who the poet was.

.: Analysis and comments :.

(This is a personal analysis of Rilke's The Lovers and I hope it may help you guys. Feel free to read it, but plase drive into your own conclusions. Analysing literature is very complex because every person conceives details that others don't but then again that 's what forums are for. Literature's complexity nourishes the soul.

The general idea this poem deals with is a very strong one in relation to love and what it means to be lovers.

In the first two stanzas, it tries to express how through a union, ever so unique and rare, seems the run the same blood, the same essence that nourishes their love and more improtantly their existence and that enhightens it even to a spiritual plane. (The Metaphysical poet, John Donne, expresses in a very interesting view what is spirituality in love and the existence through the other one as nourishment to the soul and body in his poem Aire and Angels. )

The second two stanzas deal with the fact that one serves as support to the other and that they support each other taking relays. One maybe strong but weak at the same time, thus the febrile orbits. (Refer to Donne's poem Aire and Angels once again and read closely to the last stanzas where it describes that lovers travel encircling each other)

The other four stanzas explain the sacrifice in love. One feeds the other and perhaps may starve to death so the other lives and otherwise. A the same time, they guide each other. They are eyes to each other, and this relantionship can turn sick. They may hurt themselves, but that is natural to love like caresses are.

To think over...

What is love? Perhaps something further than the distorted vision we have today?

Can you love without being loved? What makes a lover be a lover?

Do we exist through each other?

Have you reall felt love? I know I haven't.
