Cast by exploding stars

We are seeds cast by exploding stars into the fertile soil of the abyss. In desperation and darkness we find our footing. We save the drops we find to kiss the fractals of our skin’s barren estuaries. We brush the stardust away from our eyelashes and paint our foreheads with the rings which are actively fleeing from galaxies that no longer exist. When we land, finally, we look for the sun to orient our belonging. This scope of madness cannot continue without our involvement.

Reaching

We are each reaching for more, teaching the surroundings to aim higher, giving the example for hunger and thirst in a spiritual sense. The sky may stoop lower to give us a hand up. The wind may wink as it makes contact, letting us know that it is able to witness our efforts. The wind and the sky both approve of the approach.

Fallin For Fannin

We gathered on Saturday, May 19th, 2018. It was a perfect day. Love is in the air, vows have been made, and dancing filled the woods with distinction, creativity, familial warmth, exchanges of laughter, and bliss. This was and is what love should be. This one will stay with us.

Before we kiss

I am based on a true story, although I may never know fully what that story is. Trying to make sense of the world before me, so I might come to know eternity in a glance before we kiss.

Lucky

They say it’s good luck if it rains on your wedding day, and also if that’s on a Friday the thirteenth. So if those drops happen to fall in the middle of July, in the heart of artown, then the universe will have acknowledged what I already know: that I am truly a lucky creature who is ready to take what he has learned and move forward in bliss.

Rush

The rush of oncoming emotion, and the flow of life’s circuitry, coalesce into memories of childhood, actions in a melancholy present, and aspirations for a dystopian future.
