my occasional musings on life, love, art, perfume ... what else is there?


This Painter Once Gave Me A Painting; A Girl Once Gave Me This Poem.

somewhere i have never traveled,gladly beyond
any experience,your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near

your slightest look easily will unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skillfully,mysteriously)her first rose

or if your wish be to close me, i and
my life will shut very beautifully,suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;

nothing which we are to perceive in this world

equals the power of your intense fragility: whose texture
compels me with this colour of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing

(i do not know what it is about you that closes

and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody, not even the rain,has such small hands

(many thanks to cjblue for reminding me)
