That Space Between Time And Eternity

“Night. The stars and the moon impassive, undisturbed, eternal. A little of their impassivity flows into me. They are consoling. They reduce the intensity and acuteness of human sorrow. I feel less strangled, less oppressed.”

Anaïs Nin, from The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 3: 1939-1944

impassive? 
Impassive?

ha!!  HAH!!
and undisturbed
never, forever

stars are not
undisturbed
and impassive.

they sing
they dance
they cavort
they shout
they occupy
the space between
time

and

eternity.

and don’t even
get me going
on about
the moon!

Night is
the occasion
for the moon
and the stars
to heal us.tumblr_nuprhd5Af11s4uwt4o1_1280
