#SoftTuesday . . . .I love you as….




“I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
Or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
In secret, between the shadow and the soul.”

From “100 Sonetos de Amor,” Pablo Neruda;





Illus. of “Topaz,” Gemstone Series, by Alphonse Mucha, 1900.
