Pablo Neruda

Loving is a journey with water and with stars,
with smothered air and abrupt storms of flour:
loving is a clash of lightning-bolts
and two bodies defeated by a single drop of honey.

— Pablo Neruda, from “Sonnet XII,” Selected Poems. (San Val, September 1990) Originally published 1961.
