A ring’s simplicity- by Juan M.S.

And let me talk to you with your silence
That is bright as a lamp
Simple, as a ring…

-Pablo Neruda

How should we start a new page

with an unwritten one behind?

How to scribble some denouement

for our inconclusive drama?

If life could be as simple

as reading a book,

if we could all just see the plot

that life displays for us.

But there are bad writers,

who choose convolution

because they can’t appreciate

the beauty of life’s simplicity,

shaped as a ring,

the source of all happiness.


I'm a writer born in Argentina, but currently living in Poland. I work as an English and French teacher, translator and copywriter.
