[image error]I will try to keep the yoga exhibitionism to a minimum from here on out.


Okay, so here I am in the middle of Central Park in April, doing this show-offy thing under a cherry tree. It had just stopped pouring rain, and the ground was soggy. It was also cold. It had been my plan to perform my personal yoga-class showstopper, the side splits, but I did not want to get friendly with th...

“An aphrodisiac will disappear,
delusional, like permanence or wealth -
a shimmering, as if love were a ghost -
and yet my passion for you seethes and sears
without an end. Late April leaves can’t crave
caress of dew, sunlight’s sweet splash, more than
I pine for your embrace, us turned to one;
when harsh reversals scar, the thought of you will salve
like summer wind in autumn; deep red blood
surging along with mine, staid genes worked hot
from your electric charms, as all my moods
succumb to your sweet fire, and perfect wit.
Now you are all I live for - loving you -
in fleeting world of lies, you are the truth.”
Lauren Lipton, Mating Rituals of the North American WASP

“A hundred years or more, she's bent her crown
in storm, in sun, in moonsplashed midnight breeze.
surviving all the random vagaries
of this harsh world. A dense - twigged veil drifts down
from crown along her trunk - mourning slow wood
that rustles tattered, in a hint of wind
this January dusk, cloudy, purpling
the ground with sudden shadows.
How she broods -
you speculate - on dark surprise and loss,
alone these many years, despondent, bent,
her bolt-cracked mate transformed to splinters, moss.
Though not alone, you feel the sadness of a
twilight breeze. There's never enough love;
the widow nods to you. Her branches moan.”
Lauren Lipton

Oh, dear...I am so sorry not to have responded. I think I responded in my head, "Aww, thanks, doll!" but did not actually send the note. So, "Aww, thanks, doll!"

XOXOXO


Melanie Benjamin Thanks for your comment, Lauren! (I just took the photo yesterday; new haircut! And nice natural light to diffuse all the "fine lines!")

I sent you an email AGES ago telling you I ordered MATING RITUALS...I suppose you were too busy having parties thrown by GalleyCat to respond!
