Tree of Words


1. I Love You

I love you

as the sea loves the tempest,

as the night loves all its creatures.

I love you

with the desperate love

of shells cleaved to the reefs,

with the solemn love

of crickets chanting in the summer night.

I love you

with the nameless love

that turns insects into butterflies,

with the love that is born again

like the seasons,

like earth's endless fields

each time the rain descends to feed them.

I love you

and any other word

can't explain what is born

and rises deep inside me

and binds me to you.
