“in the afterglow
of an evening rain

i lay down
in the grass
and think of you

my body aches
like an after-kiss

breaking in soft fires
and wildflowers

my dear,
i will always be
this tender for you.”
Sanober Khan, A Thousand Flamingos

Kahlil Gibran
“That deepest thing, that recognition, that knowledge, that sense of kinship began the first time I saw you,and it is the same now - only a thousand times deeper and tenderer.

Kahlil Gibran

“I am metaphysical being, mystical and emotional, skeptical and cynical, happy and boisterous, loud and bawdy, quiet and melancholy, tender and cruel, full of mirth and despair. Inherent inconsistences mark me as part of nature, which is neither cruel nor fair, or reliable or predictable.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Alfred Hayes
“I made spasmodic efforts to work, assuring myself that once I began working I would forget her. The difficulty was in beginning. There was a feeling of weakness, a sort of powerlessness now, as though I were about to be ill but was never quite ill enough, as though I were about to come down with something I did not quite come down with. It seemed to me that for the first time in my life I had been in love, and had lost, because of the grudgingness of my heart, the possibility of having what, too late, I now thought I wanted. What was it that all my life I had so carefully guarded myself against? What was it that I had felt so threatened me? My suffering, which seemed to me to be a strict consequence of having guarded myself so long, appeared to me as a kind of punishment, and this moment, which I was now enduring, as something which had been delayed for half a lifetime. I was experincing, apparently, an obscure crisis of some kind. My world acquired a tendency to crumble as easily as a soda cracker. I found myself horribly susceptible to small animals, ribbons in the hair of little girls, songs played late at night over lonely radios. It became particularly dangerous for me to go near movies in which crippled girls were healed by the unselfish love of impoverished bellhops. I had become excessively tender to all the more obvious evidences of the frailness of existence; I was capable of dissolving at the least kind word, and self-pity, in inexhaustible doses, lay close to my outraged surface. I moved painfully, an ambulatory case, mysteriously injured.”
Alfred Hayes, In Love

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Tenderness is not weakness. Rather, it is a decision to face the scathing brutality of life, but to refuse to allow brutality to set the terms of the engagement.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Avijeet Das
“She is a rare rose. One which blooms in the night. She hides from the world. She is tender and sensitive. You can only see her from afar. Don't try to go near her. She may disappear forever from this world.”
Avijeet Das

“My prayers for these stressful days
Have become sharpened. Unadorned.
A single word to the bereaved and
Wailing Mother God - mercy.
Two words to
The infant child God, on trial in
an unjust system--
Tender love. And for the God who
is not a
White, robed, bearded father, but
a migrant laborer
Daddy, with a red baseball cap,
who only cries
When he thinks no one can see,
not a word, but
A silent squeeze of his calloused
hand to telegraph
Reconciliation, wholeness. There
was a time when
More words brought comfort, but
now my heart
Wants most to be true. Ready for
resistance by
Unapologetic clarity and fueled
by moving toward
A future in which we have made
all of us free.
-Holy Quiet”
Theresa I. Soto, Spilling the Light: Meditations on Hope and Resilience

“words are tender
and sensitive too

when others may not”

“First, we put some shallow cuts in the meat in a grill pattern...
then, we pound it until it's thin! Next, we cover both sides of it with minced onions and let it sit."
Covering the meat with onions? I think I read about that somewhere...
"Okay, now we scrape off the onions and season the meat with salt and pepper. After searing the steak, we melt a dollop of butter in the same frying pan...
... and caramelize the minced onions in the juices left from the meat, melding the two flavors together! After they're done, we cover the whole top of the steak with the caramelized onions...
... and use the back of a knife to put the grill pattern back into the meat. Put it all on top of some cooked rice...
and it's done!"
"Oh, yeah! Now I remember! This...
It was created in 1936, specifically for visiting opera singer Feodor Chaliapin. Bothered by a toothache, the singer requested a dish with "tender steak." This was the result. Accordingly, it is a uniquely Japanese steak, unknown to the rest of the world.

"Okay you two, taste it!"
"A-all right..."
It's so tender!

"Whoa, now this is tender! I can cut it using my chopsticks! And when I take a bite...
...it practically melts in my mouth!"
"Onions have an enzyme in them which breaks down protein, just like honey and pineapple do. That's why the steak is so tender."
You'd never believe this was a cheap cut of meat. Its savory flavor fills the mouth with each bite...
there's no knocking the combination it makes with the rice, either.
Who would've thought of using a steak grilling technique...
... on a beef bowl?

In slow-releasing tendrils

“My heart is like a blank sheet.
And I draw something sweet.
Sometimes it's a growing bliss
To keep blowing a tender kiss!

Meu coração é como um papel em branco
Onde pinto e bordo, sem muito solavanco. As vezes mesmo sinto esse enorme prazer
ao mergulhar num mar de coisas pra fazer!”

“Will arrived home just after 2:00 a.m., exhausted and ready for bed. One glimpse of seeing Emerald passed out on his couch and snuggled in his comforter had his eyes ready for more. She looked so damn good in his house. All he wanted was to wake her up long enough to come to his bed, so he could wrap her in his arms and drift off to her scent.”
H.S Howe, Wrestling William
