In this Instant

"In this instant, there is all the possible joy and pain.
Love and contempt, peace and terror,
the enchantment of eyes infused with passion and devotion,
the icy and bitter look of a grievous parting,
the soothing warmth of a long-awaited embrace,
the heinous cold-heartedness of a sudden abandonment,
all here in this instant, in this instant.
Many faces, eyes, mouths, hands,
vibrant bodies dancing and celebrating life,
glacial bodies absorbed and dissolved by death.
In this instant, which opens the heart,
tenderly tearing it, filling it with all the possible joy and pain,
in this instant."

(Franco Santoro)
