Amid opalescent fragility, across the frigid lake, she walks within a sparrow's nest and never stops to think. Tea time with the penguins, dinner on the moor, she falls within a hairline crack though never does she sink.
The foxes always bid her stay but she'll always be a runaway.

  2. I don't know what kind of creature that is in the second picture but... I definitely want one as a pet. =D

    This is quite lovely and enigmatic. (I would absolutely adore having tea with the penguins.)

  4. How gorgeous is that second picture! It goes above and beyond the "Awww" factor. Your writing, dear, is beautiful! It's such a curious piece - one sewed from silk and mystery. I love reading every word you write. xx

  7. The last line is my favorite. It makes me think of fables and colored pencil illustrations.

  8. Ah, la belle Persephone!

    I also want the critter. As far as I know, it's a Momonga (Japanese flying squirrel) So cute!

    Lovely writing, as always, Babe.XXX.

  15. Thea: This is what happens when I spend two hours on three sentences. xD You do not know how much that means to me, sweetling. You have and always will remain on my favorite blog list.

    Holly: It was a treat to listen to! I feel like I can relate to a lot of what you went through. It's encouraging to hear from a wiser perspective on events that permeate your own life. xx

  17. Sometimes, like now, I wish I could show my soul to people, to make it into a picture I could show and people would understand how I felt when nothing else, not even words can explain it.
    This feels like perfection, only softer and prettier. This is something so beautiful that only a soul like yours could possibly write.
    Thank you
    <3

    Mars: Oh my gosh, thank you so much! What wonderful words to come home too! I too wish I could show my soul to people.. but sometimes, I think secrets make a person more interesting.

    I love you all. xx

  19. I adore, adore, ADORE your blog. It is bittersweet, beautiful and makes magic out of sad things. Not only that, it is full of my favourites: Never Never Land, Hogwarts, Disney and melancholy. It is truly truly lovely. xxx
