I have children that I have generated
on happy and joyful days,
easy laughs, affectionate toasts,
tight hugs and endless kisses.
But I love more the ones generated
on unexpected and improvised feelings,
without flaunt or adornment,
no parties or songs,
just by sudden enchantment of beauty.
Yet I love even more those created
on that ordinary, dark and quiet day,
without desire, rapture or passion,
by just communing and obeying to
our Creator’s greatest commandment:
“Be fruitful and multiply. Bring forth abundantly
in the earth and multiply in it” – Genesis 9-7.
