It is enough that you pass by words
For the phoenix to find its form in us,
And for the spirit born of its spirit to give birth to a body…
Spirit cannot do without a body
To fire with itself and for itself, cannot do without a body
To purge the soul of what it has hidden from eternity
So let's take fire, for nothing, but that we become one!
Mahmoud Darwish from 'The Seven Days of Love'
