Ecclesiastical

I wrote a poem.  I’m at a crossroads in life, and no doubt overwhelmed. Enjoy.
Clearly, your feet have not dipped past the ivy crusted rims

Feeling the soft tickling of forgotten mosses,

They’ve meandered through the clattering shells clinging

To rounded flowers opening and closing before you.

They have not waded between the fluid roads revealed and at end

In the sky wandering round and straight in their wondrous Milky Way.

 

Where have you rested your head, those days you believed it was softened moss?

Whose breath did you let caress your face, what purple did you make your shade of nightingale?

 

They turn round eastward, towards instinctively home

The auburn sky is ablaze and you are there,

Feeling nothing

But still teeming, seething and afloat.

The chasms spread before, thinly sunk into worn crevices,

Peeling skins off of the age old trees and the heaven dense auras

The valleys and its hidden villages are to be pillaged

Only by those ravenous in the mouth.

A donkey bears the laden fruits of your search

And together you make it to the hole

Where you bury the hatchet, and leave the memories under

The skies fondle a home in the murky waters below.

Your sister is both there and already in the wind,

Faces sunken, but never lost.

Well done, the deed is done.

Whatever you have seen,

The losses you have carried,

The tragedies you have committed in both your name and others,

The slandered will rest easy tonight.

 

When the night falls, and you offer your soul to the pits,

You are free, and free of burden.

Incheon, Korea//Date on the Moonlight Path

Hello everyone! The weather in Korea is steaming hot, but it’s definitely better than to all my summer breaks here. Maybe it’s because I go about building-jumping between air conditioners. Anyway, this got me reminiscing of early spring, on one of my dates with my lovely boyfriend when he taught me how to long board.IMG_6030

He left the longboard for me at home to try out but I’m too scared after hurtling down a small but significantly terrifying hill.

We decided to take a stroll away from campus after a long week of college toil. The beautiful flowers were just beginning to fully blossom and the colors were just stunning! The trail is actually a bike trail that follows a little river, and the sight of people gently canoeing down the stream and pet owners jogging their dogs made for an energetic and peaceful afternoon.IMG_5998          IMG_5919

I recommend this path during the budding seasons to clear your head after being cooped up all day.

This abundance of flowers allows for a unique and heartfelt flower ring!    IMG_5928IMG_5916

HRE Zimbabwe// Day amongst the flowers

Confession: I have a strong affinity for flowers. So imagine the delight when I finally returned home to Zimbabwe for a sunny winter, quite different from the shivers in Korea! I visited the local organic market held nearby my house where the ordinary parking space was dotted with homemade pastes, cookies, meringues…homegrown flower pots and all the sort!

Right next door, in a beautifully quaint cafe we ordered some deliciously frothy chocolate milkshakes and croissants filled with fresh vegetables. An aesthetically pleasing day all round.
