Your Print!

You left your print in me,
An image of you that has permanently marked my retina,
An image that warms me, shines through me, and dances with me.

The warmth of the sun in a winter day,
The shine of the moon in a dark night,
The dance of the Chergui wind on the feathers of a seagull,

You left your print in me, warmer than the sun, shinier than the moon, a better dancer than the Chergui wind!

What We Are...

"It is certain that we cannot overcome anguish, for we are anguish."

(Jean-Paul Sartre, Being and nothingness: an essay in phenomenological ontology)
