Thought for the Day

Absence is a house so vast
that inside you will pass through its walls
and hang pictures on the air.
~ Pablo Neruda

Quoted from Neruda's "Sonnet XCIV" in 100 Love Sonnets (Trans. Stephen Tapscott; University of Texas Press, 2014) This is a bi-lingual edition. Neruda published the collection in 1959.

Pablo Neruda, 1904-1973, Chilean Poet, Winner, Nobel Prize in Literature 1971
