The time and place grow ripe when the idea
Marries its proper image in volition,
When desire and intention kiss and bruise.

- Lawrence Durrell. “Pomona de Maillol (For Eve)”, extract. In On Seeming to Presume: Poems. London: Faber and Faber, 1948, page 12

If I could
hold light
in my hand
I would
give it
to you
and watch it
become
your shadow.
