Ode To Lunar Eclipse

You, darkness, of whom I am born

I love you more than the flame that limits the world

To the circle it illumines and excludes all the rest

But the dark embraces everything:

Shapes and shadows, creatures, me, people, nations..

Just as they are

It lets me imagine a great presence stirring beside me.

I believe in the night

Rilke
