and tears in the stillness of the night.

    The tender leaf beneath a layer of snow, and a liquid moonlight of emotions, wintering, in their season.
    Peace to you Virgilio.

    • thanks, Teri, for the wonderful poetic words…dealing with the paradox of life is an endless exercise and it requires being vulnerable, having an open heart, sustaining an inner fortitude…it is a mystery…and yet it is what moves the cycle of life…
