Inspired by "The Wide Ocean" and "Leaning Into The Afternoons" by Pablo Neruda
Cedars, pines, maples and oaks flow slowly into winding dusk
and leave their smooth scents to seduce the endless curves of evening.
Rivers moan and stretch homeward toward the sea,
broad branches shivering under the weight
of purest love moving beyond known shores,
tending somber children's infinite thirst with songfulness.
We bear night and its countless stars with our mouths open,
our silent questions each touching and tasting heaven.
