to  the  ghost  of  winter: 

relics  are  their  own  poetry,  they  haunt  the  fingertips  of  strangers. 

you  weave  yourself  like  stagnant  rain,  irascible  and  tarnished,  edges  of  these  diamond-pools  scuttling  away  like  grasshoppers;  fragility  is  never  so  bad,  you  said,  and  I  knew  then  that  we  could  never  build  castles  from  the  shattered  glass  of  your  hands  (they  did  not  cup  my  oceans  yesterday,  when  I  cried  skyscrapers.)

time  sings  of  ephemerality,  like  all  anarchists  do.

we  are  dying  with  uncensored  eyes  (transparency    has  shed  all  its  meaning).

weeping,  at  the  graveyard:  autumn,  all  I  have  of  you  are  bare  branches  (for,  my  sweet,  you  were  marked  only  by  spirited  absence).  we've  grown  tired  now,  in  our  unbuilt  coffins.

Oh love, this is truly beautiful. Your words never cease to touch my heartstrings and make them play beautiful notes they didn't know they could reach. Every time you share pieces of yourself, I feel as though I've stumbled upon a true treasure, like finding an ancient but precious book in a chest in the attic. Never stop being who you are.

Grace and peace,
Kinnery xx

The seasons are alive. I love that. Winter has died and Autumn is weeping. I wish I could stay here. Everything is so ethereal. It's beautiful.
I also love your layout. Did you design it with html?

Utterly at a loss for words, beautiful Julia. The magic you created with this is superb, nobody could ever be able to accurately sum up how beautiful it is in any number of words. You're astounding.

All my love,
Norah xx

we live our lives in ephemerality, if there's anything the past few weeks have taught me, it's that you cannot trust a moment. You cannot look for consistency anywhere.

you're so lovely, dear. a delight. x

You are a poet, my dear girl.

i love your blog design. it's so simple and beautiful.

Jhordyn Ashley said...

Oh! Dearest how I wish you would allow us to comment on your magnificent words. I dearly miss your presence, it feels as if you are not truly here. I especially adore your full moon photographs! How ever did you get such a good shot, whenever I try to photograph the moon it turns out to be a small white light in expansive black, nothing like the detail you captured. Oh, I would love to hear from you some time, e-mail me if you wish, anything to make it so that you are here once more.

xx and hugs
