Bedtime Poetry

I find it with my hand along the curve of your waist, sensing in slow seconds the tilt of the milky way.

-Arthur Sze, The String Diamond  

Today is just a quick post that comes from reading some poetry before bed. This book The Redshifting Web has been sitting on my bookshelf unread, a remnant of one of my poetry classes. To be honest, I don't understand most of what Sze is doing in his poems which is why this book stayed unread for so long. But its always good to challenge myself to try, especially when I am rewarded by gorgeous lines like this one.
