Guess.What.Day.It.Is?

  • Photo by majed al zaabi with Friend Kiss at Al Jīzah, Al Jizah, Egypt. NatGeo note: “Majed, I appreciate seeing the relationship between these two who, as you have said, have worked together a long time. Often we see these animals providing tourist with pleasure, a service. In this photograph, as with other photographs submitted of mahouts in India, this is a “behind the scene, off time” of their lives as partner who care for one another.”

Lightly child, lightly

And now an inaudible breeze, a mist, a silence, a kiss almost,
gathers them together,
erases them, caresses them, and very gently mends them.
Now they are as they are.
Now they can be recognized.

~ Vicente Aleixandre, from “The Class,” A Longing for the Light

Pink Mouths Unfurl

I’ve seen in March or April
when the tree’s myriad pink mouths unfurl
and blow kisses to everyone in sight
