quote #22

In the window, the moon is hanging over the earth,
meaningless but full of messages.

It’s dead, it’s always been dead,
but it pretends to be something else,
burning like a star, and convincingly, so that you feel sometimes
it could actually make something grow on earth.

If there’s an image of the soul, I think that’s what it is.

"A Village Life"
Louise Glück
