Conversational dialogue, storytelling, sharing, humming and song in solidarity, hugs and tears and dripping stars. Someone, a figure, catches my gaze, standing at the world’s edge, watching, waiting, steadied.
Take my seed, fertilized as it may be, that would not burst forth.
Cultivate my tiny rose in these rich soils of my despair.
Plant it as the hope-bird, nurture and sustain as it grows.
May our flower blossom millionfold,
May you rend its blooms and petals to the wind,
as our jubliee offers this crown,
and hope fills your heart as you sing with the wind.

The world is still beautiful. It’s pure, no need to remain unseen. Despite everything, I believe in the wake of dreams.
Emblem of praise, you who hold the mysterious jars. Emblem of blame, your power as eternity’s flaw.
