Morning Song

Morning Song

skin to skin I could feel us

-the liquid beneath our feet,

trampling into endless vacuum,

bleak and emptied I barely

recognise your bald cry, a far sea

distant and I am no more

your mother–

 

you have arrived into

a morning song

 

“It’s Him”, IV, Letters to Sylvia

There Are Clouds in These Dreams

Letter to Sylvia Cover “…there are clouds in these dreams and i am flying hard between ashes,

did you not get burned at stakes?

there are words in these dreams but I am not one saying them,

to swallow alone is pain. to breathe, a sin.

not one word out but here are letters for when you wake up,

she said, you will tell them how to say it out loud,

even with tears in their eyes. tell them.

and so I write.”

Liebster Blog Award(s)

Dear people,

I think it’s time to put the mess that is my life aside for five minutes to reciprocate my very kind blogger friend (zeelikestowrite) of mine’s gesture for nominating me for Liebster Blog Award. I am flattered and honored. I didn’t believe in blogging, but now I do believe it’s helping to keep me sane (well, a little). I do feel surprised that some of you care enough to click the plus button and decide to follow me. Okay, enough with the rambling.

My answers to Z’s questions are the following.

Describe in two words what a world without WordPress would be like?

Very Different

When did you start blogging and why did you decide to start?

Last year. I meant to create A Room of My Own.

What is your favourite possession and why?

My notes. They’d tell me who I am everytime I got lost.

Which author would you most like to interview and what would be your first question?

Sylvia Plath and none. I’ll tell her that I get it and hug her.

Which book already published, would you like to have written ?

Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams by Sylvia Plath.

What is the most adventurous food you’ve eaten?

Baby octopus.

How often (be honest) do you check your stats on your wordpress blog?

When other bloggers respond to my posts.

Where do you do most of your writing and why?

It’s not the place, it’s the timing. Whenever I am alone.

It’s like I have this mental switch that’s automatically turned on when nobody’s around.

What is the best writing advice you’ve ever received?

Write as if you are talking to certain persons.

What was the most embarrassing moment of your life?

-i have to delete this one eventually… eeepp-

Which country would you most like to visit and why?

UK. I trace memories.

You may pass this on and nominate eleven new blogs you think deserve more readers and invent eleven questions for them. Let’s get this thing around.

Cheers!
