The essential acts...

The essential acts resonate. We learn to love beyond the stones and the boats. The horizon will not be the sea where beauty and salt flood, there will be others now the petals that gently tickle the skin, touching it. Nor even the skin itself will be of use nor the blood, nor that which consoles her. Oh, how tender and sweet, how cruel and painful, the austerity of having grass, tree, root, to achieve nothing.
