in you the earth


❝ Little
rose,
rose little one,
at times,
tiny and naked,
it seems
as though you would fit
in one of my hands,
as though I’ll clasp you like this
and carry you to my mouth,
but
suddenly
my feet touch your feet and my mouth your lips:
you have grown,
your shoulders rise like two hills,
your breasts wander over my breast,
my arm scarcely manages to encircle the thin
a new-moon line of your waist:
in love, you have loosened yourself like the seawater:
I can scarcely measure the sky’s most spacious eyes
and I lean down to your mouth to kiss the earth….. ❞
Pablo Neruda
    
Lowell Hopper — In Your Eyes

head over heels


a dreaming whisper
a tenderly sound
my soul is browned;
a few drops of honey
exotic condiment
bathed in the gentleness
of my fire;
the amalgam of feelings
inspires a hurricane
of emotions‧‧‧
overwhelmed?
ₘhᵐᵐ‧‧‧ head over heels
