Ripeness makes things sweet-
don’t taste the early
fruit; leave it
to time. It leaves the fruit alone
to become fully


The Great Absence is
here again-
within me, round me.
Lord of Mercy,
lead me to the place
where I never am!


He was ready to refuse
the pleasures of all kinds
in which his beloved didn’t take part
and to pass hundreds of miles
following the myriads of his footsteps
for he hadn’t seen her for long,
for ages-
since yesterday.
