Leaves and threads

cycklamen

Thick leaves and thin threads,
their colours.
The contrasts they make.
Leaves and threads by the open window,
loose through the sky, the body.
Made of cotton, silk,
of water, air,
of gestures, presence,
of greetings and propositions,
of an endless receiving,
of purposeful silences
that wave at us,
that invite us to choose.
We chose,
and breathe on.
