Together we ratify the silence

by - 12:04:00 AM

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.

          - Love Sonnet IX 
          Pablo Neruda
