I don't think the title quite matches the piece...

simple beauties

July 13, 2020



truffula trees reaching their soft tufts up through your imagination
a blanket cocooning you with the gentle sound of a guitar strumming
the quiet of the night without the darkness
giggles while you twirl in the middle of the schoolyard
the moment you see the person who loves your shadows away
a moment tacked up on the turquoise wall in your bedroom
the splash of a stream hidden in a magnificent wood
puddles reflecting the dawn of a brighter day
I have been wanting to write this for eleven freaking days. I came up with a few of these descriptions after reading Vinter Vejen's wonderful piece, Of Legends / You / and then hit a block for what to write them into until now. Listening to Something People Say by Rachel Wammack for the first 27 times and Slow Down Hometown by Brandon Ratcliff while writing this probably helped as well. Seriously, go read that piece and listen to that song; they're so beautiful.

    It's so pretty! My favorite is the line about a moment tacked up onto a bedroom wall.

    as soon as I read “truffula trees” I clicked in to read this right away because I watched “The Lorax” film yesterday for the hundredth time and the trees in that film are called truffulas! I’m glad I did read the whole piece because it carries such beautiful words, well done :)

    This is so sweet and full of beauty! I like the line "giggles while you twirl in the middle of the schoolyard" best; it reminds me of some old-fashioned one-room schoolhouse.

    "the moment you see the person who loves your shadows away
    a moment tacked up on the turquoise wall in your bedroom" wow this "scene " I guess is so beautiful and like serene,maybe it's because I have a great imagination, just kidding lol.But really what I see when I read it is WOW
