May this be a morning of innocent beginning

This is another perfect poem. I read it this morning and I knew it summed everything up I want to reach in my life, with my whole existence and most of all with my writing (I am still so far away from this goal but to know in which direction to reach really is helpful). 

"May this be a morning of innocent beginning,
When the gift within you slips clear
Of the sticky web of the personal
With its hurt and its hauntings,
And fixed fortress corners,
A Morning when you become a pure vessel
For what wants to ascend from silence,

May your imagination know
The grace of perfect danger,
To reach beyond imitation,
And the wheel of repetition,
Deep into the call of all
The unfinished and unsolved

Until the veil of the unknown yields
And something original begins
To stir toward your senses
And grow stronger in your heart
In order to come to birth
In a clean line of form,
That claims from time
A rhythm not yet heard,
That calls space to
A different shape."

from The Artist at the Start of the Day, John O'Donohue
