Soft September

Dreams of skeletal trees and spiced coffee line my walls. I take a sip, and the hot cinnamon burns my tongue. The tree trunk is a spinal cord, and its branches are scalpulas, clavicles, and ulnas. The summer is buried underneath the roots, but if you listen carefully, you can still hear the ghosts of summer loves lost, their echoing laughter. Their initials are still carved there, encased in jagged little hearts. I mournfully brush the wood with my fingertips. The skeleton tree bends down and whispers in my ear, "We trees know better than anyone that the seasons always change."

"We trees know better than anyone that the seasons always change."
They do, they do. They are always the first ones whispering that time went on, again.

You are made of all sorts of magic; The imagery you create is hauntingly beautiful and I am left heart-racing and breath held. I cannot even begin to describe how much the last sentence haunts me - sometimes it feels as though we know almost as well as them; the seasons have a way of changing everybody and everything.
Love, Athena. xxx

Out of all the blogs I have found today (27 to be totally exact) I would have to say, none took my breath away even close to what yours has. I know my irrelevant comment is something worthless, less than a consolation prize compared to the astounding glory of your writing, but I can honestly say I haven't ever read words quite like yours. You are such a star, a beautiful, bright burning star. Thank you for existing and allowing a slight of the inspiration you weave to wrap itself around my little finger, forever.

Yours,
Norah of "let's run away"
