Favorite Quote:
"I'm restless things are calling me away. My hair is being pulled by the stars again."
- Anais Nin


Every time I’ve taken a plane
or driven on an icy road
I’d picture my death
like a glorious
flash.
A resilient
shimmer
of me
ceasing to exist.
This is not
how I pictured
it.


The author's comments:

I was lying in bed and this story (about a girl with a terminal illness whose last wish is to see the Grand Canyon with her mother) just kinda popped into my head, so I wrote the story intro in the Notes app on my phone. The next day in my creative writing class I broke it down into a poem for my portfolio.
