Painting named for a line in a poem by German poet Rainer Rilke, as translated by Joana Macy’s translation:

I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world.
I may not complete this last one
but I will give myself to it.

I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I’ve been circling for thousands of years
and I still don’t know:
am I a falcon, a storm, or a great song?
