@tellio I love most about this poem, this: "We need to know / where these lines are / so that we can cross them, /" ... Perfect.
Thank you. My oldest daughter and I are at a threshold, a jolting change that is both difficult and exciting and, yes, "dangerous." And unknown. Thank you so much for this poem.
And the photo is a literal "sprout" from your poem. :)
@GeoffreyGevalt Love the photo. Made me think of night sky pressed to the ground: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxT98lMKXtA&feature=youtu.be
@tellio Cool link. We should do a #favlink exchange: links to beautiful, riveting, funny, inspiring posts - words, vids, images, art - we love. Here’s one: (I shared with @lauraritchie in response to her murmuration vid): https://vimeo.com/islandsandrivers/murmuration
When this was first posted I used it as a warm-up writing exercise for teachers in my Master’s classes: “Watch this, write for 7 minutes whatever comes to mind.” No matter their mood the vid made them joyous, and yielded surprises in their writing.
@tellio should have said thresholds, as each of us are crossing our own for different reasons, at different stages, but we share a commonality of emotion and situation as we search, explore, plan our next stages.
