Valentines 2013

To my dear Bert…

I want you to know one thing.valentines

You know how this is:

If I look at the crystal moon,

at the red branch of the slow autumn at my window,

if I touch near the fire the impalpable ash

or the wrinkled bodies of the logs,

everything carries me to you,

as if everything that exists,

aromas, light, metals,

were like little boats that sail

toward those isles of yours that wait for me.


with thanks to Pablo Neruda who was unafraid to love, and thus could write this verse.



  1. We should all steal from Pablo. Bert is a fortunate man. Then again, you are a fortunate woman.

    • Christina Carson

      Love is fro sharing. You are most welcome and I’m delighted you stopped by.
