entrails release blackened sorrows;

dancing in spectrals, gliding on stars –

capturing dust to mend a broken heart

    • Thank you Zoe! I have a plan to make sure I do not get too overwhelmed or tired – I hope that helps me. I tend to get in anxious frenzies and try to do everything all at once. I am trying not to do that this time. 🙂
