Like love, Luis Alberto Ponzo, Argentina

Like love

You are
the body of the night,
the silence of time,
the colour of the voice
I’ve never seen.

You are cluster and bow,
circle of various

You are
a point of the space
where love
can keep beating
without consuming its flame.

Alberto Luis Ponzo, Argentina (1916 – )
