The night that Moon froze over

Maybe we listened to this already? Never mind, give it another whirl...



As a child,

one may lose himself in silence and be

shaken out of it. Or one dies and is it.

Once near death, one can’t see death anymore

And stares out, maybe with the wide eyes of animals.

If the other weren’t there blocking the view,

Lovers come close to it and are amazed…

It opens up behind the other, almost

an oversight…but no one gets past

the other, and the world returns again.


Rainer Maria Rilke, The Eighth Elegy


Thank you, Lumase, for bringing starry skies close enough for our unbefitting consideration. You do it so well :)
