Quote #14 of 365

Intimacy

I can be alone,

I know how to be alone.

There is a tacit understanding

between my pencils

and the trees outside;

between the rain

and my luminous hair.

The tea is boiling:

my golden zone,

my pure burning amber.

I can be alone,

I know how to be alone.

By tea-light

I can write

Nina Cassian (b.1924), Romania
