*moon Rapes His Sister Sun - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

In the pitch darkness strange things can happen;
But unfortunately nowadays it happens in the daylight too.

* The title quoted from the book ' American Indian myths and legends' selected and edited by Richard Erdoes and Alfonso Ortiz.
(This violent story tells of a stormy encounter between a female sun and a male moon.)

    Very thought provoking. It is true that terrible things can happen in daylight
    as well as in darkness. Ten for this.

    Warm regards,
