Mani: A Glimpse of the Moon God
Gentleness, and a presence so old
it has learned to be young again,
and to be filled with marvel.
A certain bemusement.
Some gentle longing that once must not have been so gentle.
Some gentle sadness that once might have been raw pain.
A wisdom that had time to turn back
into that essential wisdom of the lonely
A sense that He may be one of the Norse Gods,
but He does not fit there - or
Mani smiles at His own melancholy.
