Suddenly the silent night came alive,
as if a ‘Pause’ button had been repressed
and a different life had hence resumed.
Yet the night remained as silent and dark
as it had been before this tale began;
nothing changed in the world of our senses,
for the frequency of that life belonged
neither to the spectrum of light, nor sound,
audible to human mortals like myself,
so it was unlike anything, I had
ever seen or heard in my entire life.
On that night it felt as if the greatest of joys
had been quantified and I could lay my hands on it,
so I let myself be draped in the warm delight.
