This is my new lover, he is strong, passionate and worldly….He makes love to me with the brillance of his words, His name is Pablo Neruda and he is my sexy
August Poet of the Month
“Full Woman, Fleshly Apple, Hot Moon” Pablo Neruda
Full woman, fleshly apple, hot moon, thick smell of seaweed, crushed mud and light, what obscure brilliance opens between your columns? What ancient night does a man touch with his senses?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.
From “Full Woman, Fleshly Apple, Hot Moon”, Selected Poems of Pablo Neruda translated by Stephen Mitchell (1997)
