I have been mesmerized with the persona of Pablo Neruda since I saw the film version of Postman, The/ Il Postino back in high school. In that depiction, Neruda is an exiled poet living in Italy during the rise of Mussolini while there befriends his mail carrier in a charming story. Later, having...

When I got tired of copying love poems from the Chinese and Japanese into urgent, wretched note cards to lovers who were unattainable (and I'm a genius at finding unattainable characters to pine after)... that's when I turned to Pablo Neruda. He's even better than Asian poets at crafting throbbin...

I really sometimes wonder if I love right, love correctly, or if I love at all and am not just miming what I think, what I want, I feel. For me I love all at once, I fall very fast, but rarely. I will go long loveless periods through life, happy and unthinking of what passions I am missing, unenv...

It was one of those days. The kids flooded the bathroom, the cat vomited on my carpet, a toothbrush got lodged down the drain. One of those days. It was not a day to start a Sarah Vowell book about the beginnings of Hawaii… No, not today. Today, I grabbed the bottle of Sangria and sat down with t...

My comment would be: 'written on the wings of butterflies.'
"I want you to know
You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch

I was utterly swept away by the beauty of these love sonnets.
Someone had sent me a quote from one of them, I fell in love with it...and just had to read more....
I love you without knowing how, or when,
or from where.

Σ' αγαπώ καθώς κάποιο φυτό που δεν ανθίζει,
μα που μέσα του κρύβει το λουλουδόφως όλο,
και ζει απ' τον έρωτα σου σκοτεινό στο κορμί μου
τ' άρωμα που σφιγμένο μ' ανέβηκε απ' το χώμα.
Σ' αγαπώ μη γνωρίζοντας πως, από που και πότε,
σ' αγαπώ στα ίσια δίχως πρόβλημα ή περηφάνια :
σ' αγαπώ έτσι γιατί δεν ξέ...

My beloved wife, I suffered while I was writing these misnamed “sonnets”; they hurt me and caused me grief, but the happiness I feel in offering them to you is vast as a savanna. (…)
- with great humility - I made these sonnets out of wood; (…)
I built up these lumber piles of love, and with four...
