    "Everything that is tearing us
    down today will become a
    memory, and this memory will
    be shared as an anecdote or
    a story or a poem or a play or
    a warning.

    It will be shared with another
    human being, who will then
    understand that he is not
    alone in his sadness.

    This is why we show up for
    others and tell our tales
    and listen to others.

    I came to you
    by Jean Valentine, (n.d.)


    I came to you
    Lord, because of
    the fucking reticence
    of this world
    no, not the world, not reticence, oh
    Lord Come
    Lord Come​
    We were sad on the ground
    Lord Come​
    We were sad on the ground

    "Dusk fell
    and the cold came creeping,
    came prickling into our hearts.

    As we tucked beaks
    into feathers and settled for sleep,
    our wings knew.

    That night, we dreamed the journey:
    ice-blue sky and the yodel of flight,
    the sun's pale wafer,
    the crisp drink of clouds.

    We dreamed ourselves so far aloft
    that the earth curved beneath us
    and nothing sang but
    a whistling vee of light.

    When we woke, we were covered with snow.
    We rose in a billow of white.”

    ― Joyce Sidman, Winter Bees & Other Poems of the Cold

    Haiku (by wegs)

    Red, peaceful sunset
    A small mysterious beach
    quiets for the night

    Another haiku (by wegs)

    *This was inspired by Halloween last year.

    Translucent ghostlight
    Alone and shaking, she screams
    but, no one can hear

    I just love this one, MR - it's a great reminder to throw caution to the wind sometimes, explore more, and figure out the details later.

    I love it. I hear a train whistle from my apt every night and feel a longing to travel far away. If I could just muster the courage to do it some day..I'm a little agoraphobic I think..
