“A feeling of exultation overtook her, as if some power of significant import had been given her to control the working of her body and her soul. She grew daring and reckless, overestimating her strength. She wanted to swim far out, where no woman had swum before.”

Zen Story

Two monks were once travelling together down a muddy road. A heavy rain was falling. Coming around a bend, they met a lovely girl in a silk kimono and sash, unable to cross the intersection.
“Come on, girl,” siad the first monk. Lifting her in his arms, he carried her over the mud.
The second monk did not speak again until that night when they reached a lodging temple. Then he no longer could restrain himself. “We monks don’t go near females,” he said. “It is dangerous. Why did you do that?”
“I left the girl there,: the first monk said. “Are you still carrying her?”

The chimneys, rank on rank,

Cut the clear sky;

The moon,

With a rag of gauze about her loins

Poses among them, an awkward Venus—

And here am I looking wantonly at her

Over the kitchen sink.

 Richard Aldington

When I’d come in, she’d call me into her bedroom, take me in her arms, and cover me with kisses. She’d stroke my hair and say, ‘I love you so much,’ and when I sneezed she’d say, ‘Bless you, you know how much I love you, don’t you?’ and when I got up for a tissue she’d say, ‘Let me get that for you I love you so much,’ and when I looked for a pen to do my homework she’d say, ‘Use mine, anything for you,’ and when I had an itch on my leg she’d say, ‘Is this the spot, let me hug you,’ and when I said I was going up to my room she’d call after me, ‘What can I do for you I love you so much,’ and I always wanted to say, but never said: Love me less.”
