Thinking


Thinking, thinking what of my thoughts of why?
Thinking this and thinking that.
Hopes and dreams, thoughts of river streams
Motions of time flowing through my mind.

Thinking, thinking what of my thoughts of why?
To move a mountain that keeps you in the valley.
To face a giant that keeps you bound.
Wind and light breeze of night.

Thinking, thinking what of my thoughts of why?
Who could have? Who should have?
Why this and why that?
Flying birds holding patterns disturbed.

My thinking comes and goes
Where it stops? it does not stop.
Thinking of so many things all at once.
Thinking, thinking what of my thoughts, who could really know?

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
