Ogilvie Transportation Center, Platform 6

Some reach, some stretch, some
long for a terminus, an end, a when
when all things make sense, all the loose
threads of the story we weave come together
into something larger and more beautiful
than we could ever had imagined – a fresco
of feelings, a mosaic of moments stitched
together and splayed out across the web
of the night sky. I feel that way, too, sometimes,
nights when I look in the mirror and think to
myself has anything changed? Asking the
same questions. Getting the same answer:
silence. My hair grew. So I cut it.

    ‘A fresco of feelings, a mosaic of moments’, I loved it. Beautifully done! I’m curious to know whether your vignettes are sketched out when you are on the move, or whether you devote a special time/place exclusively for writing.

      Thank you! Typically I try to carve out the space for it, but it always it different!
