  • How do we do?
    When the world´s beauties
    seem to blow in and out of us,
    by doubling all the desires and senses?

    What to do when life is a greater sigh
    and does not fit nor at the gate or in the smile
    and when this wave which always comes, floods the spirit?

    What do we do when the sun pours
    all the wealth of waiting on the skin,
    the blue sky embraces all the lulls
    and the distances complete the upside down cycles within the longing?

    What, tell me, we do,
    when everything is like this, so big, so greedy?
    Life is one big gulp, but then...
    The after can be much more.
