Sound

Oh, Yes! PODCASTING. Stories or Poetry that you do not have to read. You listen.

The world is changing. As a writer, I can now use 5 minutes to tell a story. I can add pictures. Life is good. I can talk, you can listen while you look at an image: Storytelling made easy.

 

 

 

Audrey reads Sonnet XVII- Listen to the Podcast

 

PABLO NERUDA

Sonnet XVII


I don't love you as if you were the salt-rose, topaz
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire;
I love you as certain dark things are loved,
Secretly, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that doesn't bloom and carries
Hidden within itself the light of those flowers,
And thanks to your love, darkly in my body
Lives the dense fragrance that rises from the earth.
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 know no 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 it is your eyes that close.
