Everybody needs a little light

July 18, 2012

I don’t know why I’m writing this since this particular post has no topic or direction. I’m just listening to Nero (Archangel) and reading Pablo Neruda poems. Good combination. Like drinking hot coffee when the weather is freezing you till to your toes (a situation I am looking forward to in the immediate future … it feels like an oven in Kochi. Whatever happened to the monsoon this year?)

I am going to leave you with a quote I just discovered and fell in love with

And one by one the nights between our separated cities are joined to the night that unites us

Instant-smile-on-your-face quote, right?  Alright I can’t resist. I have to put in one more of his works.

I have named you queen.
There are taller than you, taller.
There are purer than you, purer.
There are lovelier than you, lovelier.
But you are the queen.

When you go through the streets
No one recognizes you.
No one sees your crystal crown, no one looks
At the carpet of red gold
That you tread as you pass,
The nonexistent carpet.

And when you appear
All the rivers sound
In my body, bells
Shake the sky,
And a hymn fills the world.

Only you and I,
Only you and I, my love,
Listen to me

– The Queen
