Manhattan Bridge, DUMBO, Brooklyn.

Manhattan Bridge.

Brooklyn side illuminated… Manhattan side in the dark.
One of the eeriest sights of my lifetime.

Some Fill With Each Good Rain.

by Hafiz
 
There are different wells within your heart.
Some fill with each good rain,
Others are far too deep for that.
 
In one well
You have just a few precious cups of water,
 
That “love” is literally something of yourself,
It can grow as slow as a diamond
If it is lost.
 
Your love
Should never be offered to the mouth of a
Stranger,
 
Only to someone
Who has the valor and daring
To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife
 
Then weave them into a blanket
To protect you.
 
There are different wells within us.
Some fill with each good rain,
 
Others are far, far too deep
For that.

if.

 

If – what a word that is.

 

Along the summer, along the sandy shoreline
of the heart. During the gray stones, at the edge of the lover’s incline.
Deep within the black ships, under the grief,
near the steep wish, inside the wind of time.

– Yehuda Amichai
