but with a voice for light...

"the minarets that rise here and there are not like church spires. they are slender; but they do not taper, they are the same width top and bottom, and what matters is the platform in the sky from which the faithful are called to prayer. a minaret is more like a lighthouse, but with a voice for light"

e. canetti, voices of marakesh, 1967

That lover of a night
Came when he would,
Went in the dawning light
Whether I would or no;
Men come, men go;
All things remain in God.
