Not Intrigued With Evening
invisible spacer to set column width

What the material world values
does not shine the same
in the truth of the soul.

You have been interested
in your shadow.

Look instead
directly at the sun.

What can we know
by just watching
the time-and-space shapes
of each other?

Someone half awake
in the night
sees imaginary dangers;

the morning star rises;

the horizon grows defined;

people become friends
in a moving caravan

Night birds
may think daybreak
a kind of darkness,
because that's all they know.

It's a fortunate bird
who's not intrigued
with evening,

who flies in the sun
we call Shams.
