I first saw it as a glimmer in the emerald chasm of a little eye, And later, yet again, I saw it in the fluid motions of a dancer, Whose limbs were pulled by invisible strings. From time to time, This presence visits me in various forms: Subtle, profoundly beautiful, otherworldly. Maybe not it, itself, … Continue reading Untitled No. 2
The Red Panda will not admit the ache of loneliness, aware of the promise that the moment will pass. She invests the pain into love and life, fulfilling the predestined niche that is essential to her world. She comes to life at dawn and dusk to greet and dismiss the friend of existence.
