first worldfirst world by BluestWaves
be the epilogue to the story I never wrote,
brave the storm,
the you I never met, roaming the wastelands.
(On the shores of the end of the world,
be a wisp, be an illusion,
I'll be the voice in the wind
and the waves, and the Tanu.)
And you, be the version of you that conquers
the unsullied fiords.
Be the wings of the gull,
go on forever,
get off the ferry and
run to the cliff.
Overlook the world,
tame the cape of storms.

on an empty cup of coffee for
a sign of you.
I was trying to catch inspiration while trying not to die
but dying is easier than making beautiful things,
it's not fair.
Funny how these minutes I waste writing these words are the same
minutes you'll waste reading them, and they're pointless.
I think we writers can catch time,
trap it forever in pointless word-minutes.
Loathsome creatures, we are-
well, if time is gold and words are time,
I don't think I entirely believe in syllogisms.
But there is hope, after 11pm:
in a night like any other night the wind is always
saving me from myself.
thoughtsthe dark is deep and the silence wise,thoughts by BluestWaves
the night is long and the wait is mild,
but come the rains, the sun then shines,
and gone the clouds there come the stars,
not once felt I true peace alone
no note I sing becomes my song
and no one's true, and nothing's home,
not like the place where I come from.
Seagullif I could spread wings and take offSeagull by BluestWaves
it'd be misty morning, troll-breath dim and
maybe rain, maybe a week more overcast or
it'd be day before it's day and night after it's night,
the perfect who cares, because I'm asleep,
an empty world like a concert hall,
a broader world.
Only that I' wouldn' t be asleep but awoken into
flight, this new thing of damp feathers and fog forever,
a come-and-go to the island and come and go again,
until it's boring or I stowaway
to a place where it's not winter
or a place I can sing and it sounds
like a song,
like a song I heard a long time ago before my time and thought,
I could chase this song forever if I
could lift myself up from the ground.
A journal post to explain it all, and then I let you wander in the ice, and hope that, some day, you'll come back to tell me your story.

Men Who Follow Stars: EpilogueMen Who Follow Stars: EpilogueMen Who Follow Stars: Epilogue by VasFarkas
The horizon bellowed before me. Strong trade winds pushed us forward, men shouting out orders and conditions, the sounds of sea-water and sails clouding the sky. It was glorious. This was good. This was right. I was heading back. Back to the beginning. I smiled.
Looking back, I was reminded of the things I had to endure to stand where I did. Blisters still marred my arms and feet. My body was so accustomed to the dry conditions, I was finding it difficult to believe there truly was a land with abundant water. And yet there I stood above the sea, salt marring my ankles already. I was reminded of the things I had to learn, the people I had to see, to speak to. I thought of Sherem and the way he opened my mind to the truth. I thought of Imren, with her love of plants and all things curious in the world. Alnair and Hadar, thirsty for knowledge of the cosmos and people, great teachers and warriors of the mind. I had left everything behind, and yet so mu

dolls and art and life and death and the sea behind my eyelids and a thousand voodoo huts; all revolting around the scent of the wilderness, dancing at the edge of the end of the world.
the most beautiful thing anyone has ever written for meOnce I Followed HerOnce I Followed Her
I remember looking at her walking slowly on the road, flanked by snowy hills and frost-ridden trees and grasses. Curious and intrigued, I followed her down the cold road. She was daydreaming, I could see it in her eyes, her hands, the way she walked holding on to her bike beside her. I smiled as she past by me, her eyes staring at the ground in an attempt to protect her face from the biting north winds. She was so sweet, it’s just like her to find herself walking against the freezing wind.
She walked for miles, ice crunching under her feet. I followed, close by, sometimes walking behind her, other times running ahead of her, looking back every now and again. Then, having noticed the wind giving way, she stopped by an abandoned, broken fence by the road. Or was it a bench, I couldn’t say. She sighed softly, her warm breath condensing in white, cloudlike vapor in front of her. She looked around, and when our faces crossed paths, I realized just how much I
