Letter Between Journeys

by Liminality


Text:

Dear girl, as I have told you

in the last letter I sent you,

there are many visions in the Library of Intangible Feelings,

stored above thick branches, under vast and cavernous ceilings.

.

You could pore over them for hours,

finish a pot of coffee, sweets and sours,

stack plates beside you on the long table stretching

into the shadows like a hungry fledgling.

.

These are the ones I like:

flowers growing from weeds;

a butterfly living a half-day longer, sunset on its golden wing,

as it slips through the breezes, and coaxes them to sing.

.

If you can remember them,

it would make me pleased.

Yours sincerely – one lost in his wanderings,

longing for cake and idle ponderings.

There’s always a story. It’s all stories, really. The sun coming up every day is a story. Everything’s got a story in it. Change the story, change the world.
