Greatest Books of All Time (in my opinion): 1/?
I am the Messenger
reach for you before
opening my eyes.
This weight on the other side of the bed
is only books, not you. What
I said I loved more than you.
Thought these mornings
I wish books loved back. ❞
Sandra Cisneros, “Bay Poem from Berkeley” from Loose Women (via lifeinpoetry)

I don’t know if I should be saying/sharing this, but there’s this thing that’s happening with me lately where just about anything nice that comes my way makes me well up. This message was no exception. Thank you so much for your kind words, anon! :)
Marcel Proust’s Manuscripts
those upright lines? those curves, angles, dots?
No, those are not the words—the substantial words
are in the ground and sea,
They are in the air—they are in you.
Were you thinking that those were the words—
those delicious sounds out of your friends’
No, the real words are more delicious than they.
Human bodies are words, myriads of words;
In the best poems re-appears the body, man’s or wo-
man’s, well-shaped, natural, gay,
Every part able, active, receptive, without shame or
the need of shame. ❞
Walt Whitman, excerpt from “To the Sayers of Words”
Vorrei quasi che noi fossimo farfalle e vivessimo appena tre giorni d’estate. Tre giorni così, con voi, li colmerei di tale delizia che cinquant’anni comuni non potrebbero mai racchiudere.
Scrivete le parole più dolci e baciatele, così che io possa posare le mie labbra dove furono le vostre.
misslibrelula replied to your photo “Everybody lives, Rose! Just this once! Everybody lives!”
(That was meant to be a celebratory winky gif, but then I realised there is a koala eating a leaf in it, and I am not wishing a hungry koala on your plants, okay? Just yay!)
Haha, that gif is perfect! Apparently I have to snip some of the larger stems so that the plant can grow back bushier, so I just imagine that koala is me munching on my parsley leaves once I cut them :P
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
vi la película pero no he leído el libro…me parecía muy dramático pero también muy bien escrito c:
Ahh, no sabía que había una peli! Ya la encontré en youtube, así que tengo plan para esta noche :P
A mi me gustó como está escrito el libro, y la forma como están estructurados los capitulos hace mas llevadera la lectura. Y drama, que decir, hay para tirar al techo! :) Pero es muy entretenido.
