“…Loving is a journey with water and with stars,
With smothered air and abrupt storms of flour:
Loving is a clash of lightning-bolts
And two bodies defeated by a single drop of honey…”
~Pablo Neruda, Poem XII, from the book Full Woman, Fleshly Apple, Hot Moon
Neruda’s gorgeous words drip and flow on the page. His poems read like a melody of moments we all know. Very, very beautiful and a lovely way to pass the time during a late summer afternoon.
