flowers, falling into you

Tears on hanging flowers,
Tears from lost sources
Tears of autumn spread,
Tears of horns heard
Tears of Latin bells,
Carmelites, Feuillantines …
Tears and Argentine songs
Florentine basins and garden rain
Tears of starry nights
tears of veiled flutes in
the blue sleeping dawns

Tears on long lashes, tears
of lovers poured into pearls
Tears of ecstasy’s delicious
weepings, falls and nights
of flowers, falling into you
and You, the sweetest river
of my tears for you, the richest
Tears of treasure dried empty
arms opening wide and big
reaching down into the
saddest dream of tears found
in the languid night seas
