“I know someone who kisses the way

a flower opens, but more rapidly.

Flowers are sweet.  They have

short, beatific lives.  They offer

much pleasure. There is

nothing in the world that can be said against them.

Sad, isn’t it, that all they can kiss

is the air.

Yes, yes!  We are the lucky ones.”  –Mary Oliver

“At no other time (than autumn) does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea, bitter where it borders on taste, and more honeysweet where you feel it touching the first sounds. Containing depth within itself, darkness, something of the grave almost.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke
