I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino


The Moon, ready to return,
Holds back, so the Sun,
Hot and furious
May reach her climax

Then slowly takes over
Sweet and gentle
to cover earth’s naked
body with her light

And so it is,
burnt onto human DNA,
is the Sun’s fierce desire
to return to empty

Lovers know this Way

— Abraham Menashe
