Sonnet XVII
(Pablo Neruda)

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

Heck yeah I made Rumcake today!

It seems only just that I post the recipe for posterity, because it's the one we usually work off in the W and tastes fairly delicious, if I do say so myself. My brother still refuses to try it.

The actual link to the Allrecipes site is here:

Rock on.

A two-days-ago munch.

Why thanks again, Allrecipes!

Oh man, another recipe. I'd apologize to my future self for making it necessary to sift through even more mindless chaff to get to anything in my journal, but this involves delicious, so I won't.

So, funny story too- we accidentally got beef bouillon and ginger-teriyaki sauce and it was still very delicious. Mmm!

in the rain-
darkness, the sunset
being sheathed i sit and
think of you

the holy
city which is your face
your little cheeks the streets
of smiles

your eyes half-
half-angel and your drowsy
lips where float flowers of kiss

there is the sweet shy pirouette
your hair
and then

your dancesong
soul. rarely-beloved
a single star is uttered, and I
of you

(ee cummings)
