...the soft dark moss...



Then suddenly, unexpectedly, you become aware of hearing the repeated trickle of drops of water, and it is not clear for the moment whether you saw them as well, or whether it was enough to hear them to imagine you had seen them, crystalline, cold and merry, minute, numerous, limpid, on the surface of the soft dark moss: a kind of carillon, minute and purposeful, its bells dispersed at various levels of the rock, ringing in no apparent order, merry yet hidden, speaking on the earth’s surface; and you are compelled to stop, to be silent if you happen to be speaking; but not to the point where you would go down on your knees. Quite simply, you fall silent, and perhaps you smile as you do at those memories that light up in the darkness of the mind – sometimes.

~ Philippe Jaccottet, from "Threshold" in Landscapes with Absent Figures
