touching



My birthday.Today.What a beautiful afternoon,with you.

" The essential poem at the center of things ,

and one trembles to be so understood and,at last,

to understand,as if to know became

the fatality of seeing things too well."

W.Stevens

breathing



"Every phrase and every sentence is an end

and a beginning.

Every poem an epitaph.

And any action is a step to the block,to the fire,

down the sea's throat or to an illegible stone:

and that is where we start."

Eliot
