The fire of love

















The Eternal Idol by Rodin

I burn with a fire
and you submit with desire
our love is entire

  1. Rodin was a marvelous sculptor, wasn't he. I hadn't seen this one though. The title is interesting, I think.

  5. Wow - talk about shifting gears from your Maisie story. But shift you did - and it was done with panache! Loved the 'ku!

  6. I didn't think you were a haiku person, but you jolly well are!
    Well done. We always liked Rodin,
    didn't we.

  8. Of course the genius of that image (and this gets applied to your writing) is that the fire isn't all consuming....there is vulnerability of the one arm behind his back. He isn't fully in control or fully powerful. There is a sexiness to that detail.

  10. I loved how you piece was wonderfully sparing in words, yet contained all of that sculpture within it. Marvelously done!
