Every time when
we look at the sky,
we should remember
we come
from the stars,
life comes
from the heavens,
a part of us
has remained up there,
and the skylight
can purify us.


The skylight
can make us
understand that,
even if we would live
for eternity,
we must value the moment,
because the moment is
the radiant that gives sense
to our lives.


The most important thing?
The skylight must be
reflected in us,
and from us
to the others.
