The challenge of writing what can’t be put to words in the absence of an irreplaceable someone

The art of writing a Cantiga de Amigo – literally translated to “song of a friend”, a medieval lyric poetry genre, from the Northwest quadrant of the Iberian Peninsula. Distinguished for its female point of view, often depicting how the author misses their loved one (“friend” stands for suitor, lover or husband) who is away.

Such a task is not to be taken lightly, putting fervorous feelings down on paper. Such undying passion can change countries – at least, as long as it burns.
