FENÊTRE

 

“The earth is not a mere fragment of dead history,
stratum upon stratum like the leaves of a book,
to be studied by geologists and antiquaries chiefly,
but living poetry like the leaves of a tree,
which precede flowers and fruit ~
not a fossil earth, but a living earth;
compared with whose great central life
all animal and vegetable life is merely parasitic.”

 

~ Henry David Thoreau ~

LUNA FELLARE

 

In many older versions of Indo-European languages
(Sanskrit, German and Gothic),
as well as Babylonian and other dialects from the Middle East,
the word for the moon is always masculine
and the word for the sun always feminine.
The confusing part is that the Sanskrit-related languages
(Latin, Greek, French, Italian, Portuguese)
have always defined the sun as male, and the moon as female.
