Legacy of the old Latin Fiat Lux
“Let there be Light”, like lightning,
inspiring minds from ancient Rome
to digital age, lighting up lakes,
leaves, illuminating hues of
landscape, at this very moment
sheds light onto this Book of L.
“L”, a magic ring, holds key words about
Life which is like a line, drawn by
looking deep, listening and learning, by
laboring brain and limbs, and by
leisure; dotted by being lost to fame or
luxury, lured by lust,
laden with desire for lots of lots. Or,
Life can also simply tune in to
lovely music, light footsteps and
laughter, cheery or without choice.
Book of L sees
L in Quotation,
L in Latin Motto, and
L in Poem. Poetry lives beyond
literature, and poets are beyond masters of
languages. Their passion and expression,
brilliance and down-to-earth cutting wit
spark lightning, lighting up centuries’ space time and
the way for generations after generations! Reading
lines from classic poems, heritage to all, is
Latin: “Lumen Ad Viam”.
Buddha: “Thousands of candles can be
lit from a single candle, and the
life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
Therefore, to Light, is our dedication
~ three lit candles, three Books of L.
Enjoy, dear readers.
