Favorite Quote:
"What will you do with this one wild and precious life?"--Mary Oliver

Persistantly penetrating gravity,
maintaining a delicate balance,
held together by meager spindles of delicately woven crystals.
An uncommon phenomena,
occurring less than annual,
only in the bleakest, coldest times.
Hiding their many faces in the blanket of white,
Quaint, white feathers fall from the heavens.
I whisper my secrets into their listening ears
as they fall to their many deaths;
landing on my windowpane,
they fade into nothing.
Just like my thoughts I share with none.
Oh so softly,

Yay Megan!

I really like it. I wish we had English again next year just so I could read your stuff.
