Today one of my favorite poets, no writer paints images of love with words like Pablo Neruda.  The one for today is a little more complex than most of his pieces but no less beautiful, enjoy.  ~ ZD Blue

In the wave-strike over unquiet stones

By Pablo Neruda

 

 

In the wave-strike over unquiet stones
the brightness bursts and bears the rose
and the ring of water contracts to a cluster
to one drop of azure brine that falls.
O magnolia radiance breaking in spume,
magnetic voyager whose death flowers
and returns, eternal, to being and nothingness:
shattered brine, dazzling leap of the ocean.
Merged, you and I, my love, seal the silence
while the sea destroys its continual forms,
collapses its turrets of wildness and whiteness,
because in the weft of those unseen garments
of headlong water, and perpetual sand,
we bear the sole, relentless tenderness.
