You were here tonight. In all your glory. Truly, glory is the word, much abused though it is. Your radiance, your light, a light darker than the darkness of night – this was your glory.

I struggled to make room for you in my chaotic soul. The world demanded a lot. Yet, you permeated me, transfused me with your joy, and everything was new. The night was yours.

The night, on this side of the earth, hidden from the sun, from heat, from warmth, drew us into it. Beyond the moon, beyond the farthest planets, it was all night.

Night was the universe. The blood running in one’s veins was the universe. The in-breath and the out-breath were the universe.
