  1. Hey Magaly! You were quick off the mark! I love your reduction of the Neruda poem into a rich jus. I especially like the phrase ‘a life-kissed tongue’ and yes, ‘poesy that nourishes
    the mind opens mouth and eye.’

  2. Oh, I too think this is perfect! I didn’t manage to get the digging in the dirt and growing food into mine, though I was aware of all the implications of that in the original. And to get all that in five lines … !

  3. Oh, there is such nurture in digging in the dirt….and nothing beats words. Combine the two and what a treat!! This is utterly delightful and life-giving, Magaly 🙂

  4. I can’t pay attention to your poem right now. You said “tongue,” so all I can picture is you sticking yours out at me, with that sexy-sinister grin. 😛

  5. Planting words in dirt gives me such a mind vision! Little pots planted, growing into stories just waiting to be trimmed, pruned, and harvested. Brilliant!
