Returning to the Beginning

“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started 
And know the place for the first time.”

~ T. S. Eliot

‘And know the place for the first time.’

Every journey is a circle

Ending where it began, whether it seems so or not.

The return comes only with new eyes,

Able to see what was not seen.

And to rejoice in the sight.

[7.31.19]
