Favorite Quote:
"...I wish none of this had happened." "So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

Tiny creamy cherry flowers
feeding on sunlight
craving moonshine
apricot stars
and swirly black holes
filled with bits of charcoal
and long forgotten formal
dusted with glitter
and spiderwebs.

Spew, but beautiful spew. Written about the same time as my poem, 'Crown'.
