#Tanka: Drink


Soar with me amongst

the stars, let our love fly in

infinite night sky

leap into the deep well-spring

and drink of my willing soul



Linda Lee Lyberg

Carpe Diem #1324 carried away by the night

The quote we are working with is from Paulo Coelho’s novel Adultery:

“Let yourself get carried away by the night from time to time. Look up at the stars and try to get drunk on the sense of infinity. The night, with all its charms, is also a path to enlightenment. Just as a dark well has thirst-quenching water at its bottom, the night, whose mystery brings us closer to the mystery of God, has a flame capable of enkindling our soul hidden in its shadows.” (Source: Adultery by Paulo Coelho)
