Favorite Quote:
Not all those who wander are lost. - J. R. R. Tolkein

To be great is to be misunderstood. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time. - Andre Gide


alone
in a basket
surrounded by artichokes
whose leaves are layers
piling up, thickening
pushing them further
and further
from the heart
mistaking themselves
for blooming flowers
I sit
without petals
smiling
knowing something
they don’t know;
knowing
that some day
they will be plucked
and smile too,
or die
rotten.
