65 (who?)
I tangled my fingers in the curls of the universe,
pulled. The earth fell out: round, warm, spinning.

Awkward and shy, she wondered how she got here; how
a rock that got wet and grew moss could be significant.

So I scooped her up in my fingers, breathed her scent:

(lilies and oceans and ozone and forests and fish and birds
and whales and rain and the empty elegance in wolf howls)

death and life. I found chaos
and knew beauty.
Just an idea that popped into my head while I was trying to imagine what poetry would think if it were a person.

Updated - changed some punctuation. Too many commas at first. :fear:

Why didn't I see this before? It's so elegant in style and flows so beautifully! You know, it almost speaks to me as an invocation of sorts, as if you're talking about of all the things in this world that inspire your writing! That's at least how I interpret it. . C:
But thank you for sharing this wonderful piece of literature, you certainly have a way with words! <3

I guess I sort of was. Existence itself inspires a lot of what I write. :P Thanks for taking the time to read. :heart:

Yes, existence is quite a stunning thing. . It's amazing how fragile and unlikely life is, and yet it exists anyway. You're welcome, I am always interested in people's literature! I have a soft spot for amazing writing <333
