Centaurus. He/She/They depends, just use my name.

Message from Writer

"Before I got my eye put out,
I liked as well to see
As other creatures that have eyes,
And know no other way.

But were it told to me, to-day,
That I might have the sky
For mine, I tell you that my heart
Would split, for size of me.

The meadows mine, the mountains mine,
All forests, stintless stars,
As much of noon as I could take
Between my finite eyes.

The motions of the dipping birds,
The lightning's jointed road,
For mine to look at when I liked,
The news would strike me dead!

So safer, guess, with just my soul
Upon the window-pane
Where other creatures put their eyes,
Incautious of the sun."

~Emily Dickinson, Sight

when you hear your voice what do you hear?
do you cringe on reflex of...

clouds.

FREE WRITING

there was a thunderstorm today.
it wasnt really a storm, just the thunder.
when you looked outside you could see the clouds.

on the ride home i leaned onto the vibrating bus window.
above me i could see the skys texture.
it was a new perspective.

the thunder continued.
an opening in the cover of clouds opened showing the cumulus above the nimbus.
bright blue and stark white colors.

and then i realized.
the clouds werent just a backdrop.
they...

Words Are But The Wind.

"Words are but the wind." ~ Shakespeare

Words are but the wind, fickle, and not dependable.

Words are but the wind, eroding, chipping at my soul.

Words are but the wind, blowing under a kite of imagination, sending it to the troposphere.

Words are but the wind.
