Once in a golden hour
I cast to earth a seed.
Up there came a flower,
The people said, a weed.

Head in the Clouds

“Time that withers you will wither me… let me lie beside you watching the clouds until the earth covers us and we are gone.”

J Winterson

Settler Cowboy Hat with Dream Catcher Earring and Necklace Set.

“it’s Clouds illusions I recall I really don’t know clouds at all…

I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions, I recall
I really don’t know life at all”.

Winter Solitude

“There is no insurmountable solitude. All paths lead to the same goal: to convey to others what we are. And we must pass through solitude and difficulty, isolation and silence in order to reach forth to the enchanted place where we can dance our clumsy dance and sing our sorrowful song – but in this dance or in this song there are fulfilled the most ancient rites of our conscience in the awareness of being human and of believing in a common destiny.”

~Pablo Neruda

All the complicated details

of the attiring and

the disattiring are completed!

A liquid moon

moves gently among

the long branches.

Thus having prepared their buds

against a sure winter

the wise trees

stand sleeping in the cold.

Winter Trees

..."The azure blue, the heavenly hue,
The first created realm of blue;
And over its radiance divine
My soul does pour its love sublime.
My heart that once with joy did glow
Is plunged in sorrow and in woe,
But yet it thrills and loves anew
To view again the sapphire blue." Nikoloz Baratashvili
