Nora Armani: Fruits of Love

Click here for the audio clip Fruits of Love read by the author, Nora Armani.

When my mind is away,
When my reason is asleep,
I’ll steal away to be myself.
Then the earth will make love to me
And impregnate me with fruits of the universe:
peaches for love, apples for lust and pomegranates for plenty.
The earth will make love to me and I will fly
To spread the pollen of good will, to bring the nectar of harmony,
to the world, sweet as original sin.
And the fruits of love will fall back on earth like rain.

© Nora Armani, Paris, 1993
