My Sensual Photos of Model Serena Penaloza & the Poetry of Pablo Neruda

My poetry was born between the hill and the river, it took its voice from the rain, and like the timber, it steeped itself in the forests.

I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.

the month of June trembled like a butterfly.”

I want to do to you what spring does with the cherry trees.

in secret, between the shadow and the soul.”

“In this part of the story I am the one who

dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you,

because I love you, Love, in fire and in blood.”

Ah, love is a voyage with water and a star,

in drowning air and squalls of precipitate bran;

love is a war of lights in the lightning flashes,

two bodies blasted in a single burst of honey.

Body of my woman, I will persist in your grace.
My thirst, my boundless desire, my shifting road!
Dark river-beds where the eternal thirst flows
and weariness follows, and the infinite ache.”

Pablo Neruda, Selected Poems

Carnal apple, Woman filled, burning moon,
dark smell of seaweed, crush of mud and light,
what secret knowledge is clasped between your pillars?
What primal night does Man touch with his senses?
Ay, Love is a journey through waters and stars,
through suffocating air, sharp tempests of grain:
Love is a war of lightning,
and two bodies ruined by a single sweetness.
Kiss by kiss I cover your tiny infinity,
your margins, your rivers, your diminutive villages,
and a genital fire, transformed by delight,
slips through the narrow channels of blood
to precipitate a nocturnal carnation,
to be, and be nothing but light in the dark.

~ Pablo Neruda

I have been doing sensual photo shoots with women clients for many years. So many of the photos that I make with these women I cannot share with the public because they are too personal and I respect that. It is always a deep honor to work with a model. One of my models & muses is Serena Penaloza. Serena is as kind as she is beautiful. I first met her in my friend Tony Abeyta’s studio & she did an energy healing on me. She is a talented stylist make-up & hair artist. When she models or works on the other side of the camera there is a loving & kind ease about her. We are a great team.

A deep & loving bow to you Serena you are beautiful & loved.
