Sunday, November 8

the cotton covered woods

I am standing in the cotton covered woods while soft flakes of snow float onto my eyelashes. I blink for a moment only to feel the cool air of November travel through the spaces between my fingers. These small spaces where my body ends are where my true love's body begins. We hold hands longer in the wintertime to keep icicles from forming.

Each year, the snow drifts onto the rooftops and every inch of earth grows quiet. I vow not to long for my garden because longing only takes away sand from life's hourglass. If I am here now, in the cotton covered woods with the one I love beside me, why should I want to be anywhere else?

  4. Makes me wish for snow, except not really. I love to look at it but only if I can sip hot tea and write poetry as the flakes dance in the wind. :)

  8. I love everything about this blog. Your hat, your smile, your lovely bangs, your outfit! everything...... the tunic..... the tights, the leg warmers........ the boots.....
    I want everything......
    I'm a dance major...a guy...who thinks fashion is fluid and should be fun and even a little edgy..... I'm not afraid to be feminine.
    I often wear sweaters and tunics over tights all over campus...... a great fall tradition for me......
    I am a super fan of your taste....... and you write so beautifully...... are you a writer?
