I love all of them

I have children that I have generated

on happy and joyful days,

easy laughs, affectionate toasts,

love whispers,

tight hugs and endless kisses.

But I love more the ones generated

on unexpected and improvised passions,

without flaunt or adornment,

no parties or songs,

by the simple, powerful dazzle of beauty.

I love even more those created

on that ordinary, dark and quiet day,

without desire or rapture, just communing

in the Creator’s greatest commandment:

Genesis 9-7 – “Be fruitful and multiply. Bring

forth abundantly in the earth and multiply in it”
