Odd Phrases - not happy with this yet though.

Butterflies – seems an odd choice to describe it

That feeling that you will never settle again

The restlessness and the excitement and the pain

Because it is not delicate, like the wings that flutter

Because it is not beautiful, like the patterns that swirl

Because it is not drawn to flowers, or nectar, or sunshine

But it does make you feel alive. And I have just come out from my cocoon.

A little bird – seems an odd choice to describe it

That feeling of knowing something you shouldn’t

The secrecy and the superiority and the surprise

Because it doesn’t chirp a friendly good morning

Because it doesn’t fly away into a distant blue sky

Because it doesn’t converse in a language you can’t understand

But it is a form of communication. And from this I always learn.


  1. It's powerful 'That feeling of knowing something you shouldn’t'. I look forward to getting a glimpse into this experience, this new found knowledge. But maybe I will need to stay in the dark. You cannot force these things. Thanks, Mariana.

  2. Odd choice indeed. And we find that a word, means only it's association. Letters together mean nothing, without the connection to experience that we have given them.
