Ordinary beautiful


I take deep breaths and just think about how much I love Autumn. I woke up to rain, a thin fog wrapping her fingers around bridges and skyscrapers, like they are mere toys. I woke up to the flurry of sorrow observed through panes and hidden from. I closed my eyes for just a second and when I opened them again, the world smelled like a freshly peeled orange and it was red and yellow, like a young fortune teller just learning the secrets of her trade. Oh, how much I love Autumn indeed.

Is it for it is like this, this pallete, same colour stains and strokes and drips when I smash the mirrors and just look within my own ribcage? Is it cause I can hear the rain murmur with the winds when I press my palms against my ears, tightly, about how many hats will they steal away from people’s heads today. Should this be a gift? Some kind of a jewel wrapped in silk and handed out to the one most dear, most precious, most painfull, most loved? No. For me, this beauty is completely ordinary. For this is how the world looks to me each time I open my eyes.

  9. Beautifully! Simply beautiful!

    Behind your eyes lies the perception of Astarte,
    dressed in red and black while she walks through the mist;
    Not a care in the world, not a chain to bind.
    And behind your words
    lies her heart, golden warm,
    and open where the words fall out..

The Inner Wilderness

Plato had amazing insight into the question of finding the unknown. "How will you go about finding that thing the nature of which is totally unknown to you?" he wondered. The deep inner space within yourself, the inner wilderness within you asks for you to explore it, and in the process discover yourself. What better way to do that than through writing? This space is a personal blog for your reading, and my writing adventure. Go through the blog that follows to, perhaps, discover something as well.
