Scented Light

“May your love for me be
like the scent of the evening sea
drifting in through a quiet window

so i do not have to run
or chase or fall… to feel you

all i have to do
is breathe.”

― Sanober Khan

SUN Confessions: Spit[e]

“Our first confessions took place outside as children. We ran, giddy with laughter, and running down sidewalks lined with cherry blossoms. One child chased another, and in the running, they didn’t use words to confess their joy, but laughter spoke it all the same. Confession need not be labeled as negative, nor limited to dark rooms without windows or fresh air. Everything we do and feel is part of nature, not religion, and only one is the true healer.”

The Murder of Fear

“Do not be afraid of love or the course it will take. There is no certainty in life. Choose love first and choose love last and it will give you more than you ever give it.”
― Donna Goddard

F O R E V E R & A Day

“There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind…”
― Shel Silverstein

B u t e o

“You’re my dream. I want to crawl inside your skin and see how you taste from the inside. I could spend a decade just listening to you sigh like that. Spend time? Give me every fucking minute and I’ll worship you like the sick, depraved bastard I am.”
― V. Theia

“The ideal state of a frozen dessert yields to melting beneath the sun’s rays, so we tend to rush the enjoyment of ice cream before it changes into something sticky and less pleasurable. Man, too, goes through states of freezing and melting, but if we standby only in his ideal state, we miss the far reach of stickiness through each phase, which, if observed with patience and allowed to cover our hearts, can become a great sweetness to our souls.”

“In hospitals, illness is allowed the freedom to wander antiseptic halls naked and wearing a countenance of pain without question. Although not stated verbally, it is understood that healing walks among crowds but happens only within the individual. We don’t ask those plainly naked and hurting to feign wellness, yet we look upon those clothed and who carry joyful expression, as if exempted from nakedness and pain. The eyes are not equipped to see the automatic wisdom of the body, and the body is not equipped to heal the ignorance that lives in the eyes.”

“The root is inclined to reach upwards to fulfill its needs. Should it yearn for only a season, its leaves shall not again return. Should it ignore its appetite, the soil in which it resides will reveal its hunger to the observer. The tree cannot possess itself without consuming the nutrients of its possessor. Only in connection does it drink, and so thrive.”
