Saudade

"Saudade" ~ José Ferraz de Almeida Júnior





















longing, deep and dark
riding contrails of recollections
on wings of melancholy pleasures
indolent desires reaching to the past
aching for a future
bound in a Gordian knot
of cryptic joys and sorrows
saudade
the heart's solace
saddened in bliss
buoyed by consoling hope
saudade
beautiful paradox
