in the pause…

overexposed, undernourished

look out below…

I been brought down to zero, pulled out and put back there.
I sat on a park bench, kissed the girl with the black hair
and my head shouted down to my heart,
“You better look out below!”

– John Prine –

i should feel…

I should feel the air move against me, and feel the things I touched, instead of having only to look at them. I’m sure life is all wrong because it has become much too visual – we can neither hear nor feel nor understand, we can only see. I’m sure that is entirely wrong.

– D.H. Lawrence –

wild places i love…

The mind I love must have wild places, a tangled orchard where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass, an overgrown little wood, the chance of a snake or two, a pool that nobody’s fathomed the depth of, and paths threaded with flowers planted by the mind.

– Katherine Mansfield – 

we are each other’s…

We are each other’s business.
We are each other’s harvest and magnitude and bond.

– Gwendolyn Brooks –

another world…

gift wrapped
There is another world, but it is in this one.
— William Butler Yeats —

the gift

i crave…

i crave

i prefer you…

Fine art by Sophia Wallace

Lovely joy left blank, perhaps you are
the center of all my labors and my loves.
If I’ve wept for you so much, it’s because
I preferred you among so many outlined joys.

— Rainer Maria Rilke —

return often…

Return often and take me at night, when the lips and skin remember.

– Constantine P. Cavafy –

your heart will…

love anything - cs lewis
