Careful Fear and Dead Devotion
Val, 21 Archive Message Links

Today was quite wonderful. My parents came home from Spain so I got up early and made them rhubarb cake with homegrown rhubarb. Then spent the morning reading and had a nap in the sun before working in the garden with my dad for the rest of the day. We planted leek, onions and tomatoes, later on had olives, cheese and white wine for dinner. Now my feet hurt, my body is tired and I am listening to the sound of the rain.

Harriet Goodhue Hosmer, Clasped Hands of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 1853 (source).
One of America’s first professional female sculptors, Harriet Hosmer met Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning in Rome in 1853. The Brownings, both well-known English poets, had eloped to Italy seven years earlier. Shortly after meeting the couple, Hosmer approached them about modeling their hands. Mrs Browning consented to the sculptor’s idea on the condition that Hosmer do the casting herself

It’s how you bring your sadness
to someone else’s story
then miss a key point,

dwelling, as you are, on memories,
the grave goods you buried
and meant to forget.

But someone brings in the backhoe
and you begin excavating,
then lose the plot

except where it corresponds
to your own story, proof
that your life is predestined,

a patterned course. You thought
you’d changed, become a better
listener, but the story is over

and you can’t remember
the ending. Those precious
fragments you’ve unearthed

still catch the light.
If only they were whole again
and belonged only to you.
