I witnessed every single day
the sun and the moon disappear 
too slow or  too fast
behind  mountains or rivers
horizons with trees
and too often
watched  it all
sink into so many lakes
and far away seas

I experienced
lunar and solar eclipses 
heartbreaking moments 
in which their lights
sometimes into another yesterday  
too often in the darkest dark night

it’s a great gift of life
not feeling blinded 
being able to see 

all those different lights
have been collecting
their forces
to shine
their light
on me 
and my  beautiful world of today
