A poem for INTJ ‘s everywhere

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Sense of Something

I am like a flag in the center of open space.

I sense ahead the wind which is coming, and must live

it through

while the things of the world still do not move:

the doors still close softly, and the chimneys are full

of silence,

the windows do not rattle yet, and the dust still lies down.

I already know the storm, and I am troubled as the sea.

I leap out, and fall back,

and throw myself out, and am absolutely alone

in the great storm.

Translated by Robert Bly

Rainer Maria Rilke

    Good morning Jo

    Hope you are well and thawing. We in the grip of a drought.

    I live in a backwoods where some of the letters skate over my head. What does INTJ stand for?
