The strange mission began
without ever warning us.
A note within a forgotten book
which we had opened decades ago
changed our lives.
Although it seemed so insignificant
it was so revealing.
On that piece of paper
merely a few words were written down
but they were sufficient.
The naked sun.
Who could comprehend these words?
Someone had read
this book of that other century.
But why this statement
regarding yet another book?
We did not immediately understand the reason.
But then we felt some strength within us.
It was that, of the Foundation.
