Flowers for my 32nd wedding anniversary
" I am here constructing the new day
With an expression so gentle and at ease
That one might say
I am doing nothing.
And yet I am here constructing the new day.
This, because the day is constructed, not waited for.
Nor is it a sun which burns in an impulse of light.
It is a choir of unheard voices, a staining of naked torsos,
A raising, as if with one voice, of galley oars…”
António Gedeão. A bilingual Anthology.
