  • Sonnet Ix: There Where The Waves Shatter - Poem by Pablo Neruda

    There where the waves shatter on the restless rocksthe clear light bursts and enacts its rose,and the sea-circle shrinks to a cluster of buds,to one drop of blue salt, falling.

    O bright magnolia bursting in the foam,magnetic transient whose death bloomsand vanishes--being, nothingness--forever:broken salt, dazzling lurch of the sea.

    You & I, Love, together we ratify the silence,while the sea destroys its perpetual statues,collapses its towers of wild speed and whiteness:

    because in the weavings of those invisible fabrics,galloping water, incessant sand,we make the only permanent tenderness.

    Pablo Neruda
