I listened as the rain swept in over the mountains. I felt the wings of liquid swoop as the skies ignited and cracked beneath a phoenix fire. I tasted the heavy mist which smelled of nature’s thirsting, and I watched as the mud danced beneath her dripping sky.

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” -Pablo Neruda
