He stood among the evergreen, moondust dripping from it’s leaves. The stars swayed drunkenly, stealing night thick as thieves.
Young prince, may your long afternoons of childhood be nourished by all things wondrous and unknown.
I wanted to hold it. To keep it safe as a raven treasures a seed. To carry it deeply like a woman heavy with child.
Tchaikovsky's symphonic poem.
We’ve grown old, dear friend. Years of infinite tenderness have grafted into our weathered skin like fruit vines.
Take every observance, every experience, every unfinished line that is imprisoned within you, and send it off into the beguiling wild.
I walk along the bitter sea. High waters brush against my knee, salt burning from uncertainty - a severed limb left amputee.
I was seized upon the sloping glen when I was twelve years old. You were stolen off the foggy moor, our captor she was cold.
Carry us on your swiftest fleet, entangle our bones in your silvery net, usher us in the glory of your chasm.
And like an untamed child, I steal away, to where everything is illuminated.
She greets you with her warm, terra cotta smile and parisian blue eyes.
