The Testimonial of Love

Of all the gifts our humanity has granted,
Longing is the most important one,
For it is the silent testimonial
Of love.


Like a rejected lover

Sometimes, on clear beautiful days,
Heaven is met
With nothing but hoarfrost
Like a rejected lover.
And it has to wait for night
To flash its most gorgeous Northern light
To get Earth’s attention.

Making Flowers Grow

Your light wanted to lift
My tears to Heaven, one at the time,
But my grief was not ready to leave
And became rain instead,
Giving its lessons back to earth
And making flowers grow
And shallow lakes deepen.
