Read to me now, in this shining moment,
the word writ soft upon the air.
Tell me the tale one kiss imparts,
what passes of love in the breath that we share.
Read to me low, the word of this nowness,
that sings timeless us, in synonymic meaning.
Utter the We which heals that space
where loveless hearts lie sadly keening.
Read in my eyes, your eyes reflecting,
mirrored to infinite seeing,
a singularity of We , born on a kiss,
in this shining moment of our being.

Nay, if our wits run the Wild-Goose chase, I am done:
For thou hast more of the Wild-Goose in one of thy wits,
Than I am sure I have in my whole five.

I agree- I loved this piece. It's almost, dare I say it, musical. Brava, petra.

And I thought: this is how poetry is born. It comes from invisible heights, it is secret and dark in its origins, solitary and fragrant, and like the river it will assimilate whatever falls in its current; it will seek a route between the mountains, and its crystalline song will ripple through the meadows."- Pablo Neruda
