Search and You Shall Find in My World

Today we remember

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! Whichever camp you are in: lovers who make this day extra sweet or those who hate those lovers because they are heartbroken and bitter.

Today we remember.

You will remember
Pablo Neruda

You will remember that leaping stream
where sweet aromas rose and trembled,
and sometimes a bird, wearing water
and slo
wness, its winter feathers.
You will remember those gifts from the earth:
indelible scents, gold clay,
weeds in the thicket and crazy roots,
magical thorns like swords.
You'll remember the bouquet you picked,
shadows and silent water,
bouquet like a foam-covered stone.
That time was like never, and like always.
So we go there, where nothing is waiting;
we find everything waiting there.
