The moon’s gravity caused the flux and reflux of the tides,
And stimulated the development of life on earth
If the sun represents the birth of life,
The moon would represent the rhythm of life
Evolution would differ without the moon

The moonlit dark night includes a mixture of life and death
The body holding potential of receiving a new life,
Is enfolded by the hair, having no end of life
The hair, feeling no pain, passes on the DNA

The night has its own role
The night– when the moon’s reflection lambently floats on the sea surface
It is the time needed by the living matters
Should human’s self-serving reasons disturb this time

In the moonlit sea, the desires for life emerge
And deaths nearby with bated breath
Would not the strain with the tension in the chaotic darkness
Be necessary for every life
