Explorations Into Liminality
“and there came an arm and a hand above the water and met it and caught it, and so shook it thrice and brandished it, and then vanished away the hand with the sword in the water.”

Roses For You



somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond
any experience,your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near

your slightest look will easily unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully,mysteriously)her first rose

or if your wish be to close me, i and
my life will shut very beautifully ,suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;
nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility:whose texture
compels me with the color of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands

That poem has a special place in my heart: My high school sweetheart quoted part of it to me once. Sweet guy.

Lovely roses, too. =)

Happy Valentine's Day!

I am swooning over the ivory rose necklet and am headed over to purchase it for my nakkie Madame la Sorciere in the turret. Every time I see any of your creations it just makes me smile.

I never knew witchies liked to just wear their jewelry and hats, nothing else! *giggle*
