Two Ponderables from Antonio Machado

 

I love Jesus who told us

the heavens and earth shall pass away.

When the heavens and earth pass away,

my word will remain.

What was your word, Jesus?

Love? Pardon? Affection?

All your words were

one word: Arise.

 

– Antonio Machado

In my solitude. I have seen things very clearly that were not true.
