Falling, falling, falling.
Down. Up? Stop.
Whites meld other colors. Blues. Deep purple. Chasing playful passions.
Passions in the air, twisting vines of design across the fading white colors.
A blink is a century, wait. Bees make the colors and wipe them across the sky.
There is nothing but sky and working bees.
What else would you stand on but sky?
Sky in front, behind, is peace. Calm. Anxiety.
Behind is guttering worry, pressing on the senses but staying just out of consciousness.
Can’t see the peace behind. Only see the beauty in front, found after a fall.
Bees migrate between the worlds. Their passions trailing off at the precipice, wilting until their bee returns for them.
If their bee returns for them.
Emerging and returning bees bring the ingredients for the colors made to be wiped across the sky.
A passion barrels toward you. Hits you square and knocks the sky out from under you.
Pick your poison.
Teach yourself which metaphor you see.
Jerked awake hot and sweaty next to a bed not slept in. Foreboding and hope tangled together as unsupervised ropes, a jittery urge to do something, choose something.
Which thing? No matter.
Follow through on change, there will be.
Tea first, then decide. The kettle whistles. Cup clinks on a saucer. The fruit cup glitters with fruits.
Picked up on a whim at the market, couldn’t possibly hurt. Hot berry’s visions only a myth.
Then why does the hand shake as it brings tea to the lips?
What did you see? What did it teach you?
Which change will your choice bring?
It must be chosen after tea.
