Letters of Life


Most people think that shadows follow, precede, or surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses and memories. —Elie Wiesel, writer, Holocaust survivor and Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

The shadow of a word

Is its opposite

The shadow of an idea

always bigger

The shadow of a desire

runs with tears

The shadow of an impulse

is where the heart is

The shadow of memories

are days without number

The shadow of a smile

is in these eyes

Tell me what you think.
