never alone.

it's chilly, but not cold
it's dark but not gloomy
you are solitary, but not alone
how can it be one, but not the other?
the wind is cool, holding a promise of frost, and bare arms are dotted with goose-bumps.
the sun is hidden since dusk, but memories of the past warm the heart, bringing a smile to frigid lips.
not cold. 
the sky is black, not yet spangled with stars
but the moon peeks out; only a sliver, like the beginning of a smile, casting golden moon-beams.
not gloomy. 
you are a single shadow upon the obscure land; standing still where your wandering feet stopped,
but you're not alone. your mind whirls with thoughts, creating images before your far-gazing eyes.
not alone. never alone. 

(just some words i wrote the other night. and the sky was beautiful last night--did anyone else see it?)

  3. The stars out here are beautiful! At Baxter State Park we're like an hour and a half away from the nearest town and there's almost nothing there so the stars are so plentiful up there! even more so than at my house. I love the summer stars here too. maybe we'll get to lay on a blanket this summer and look at the stars from a Maine yard :)

    beautiful words and pictures Mikailah!

  6. I saw the sky the other night and noticed it because I was out feeding our chickens. It was sunset and now I am editing an essay about it for class. And I can't get over the sky with no clouds and sky with clouds and everything in between and maybe that someone else is noticing it too.

    You're the best <3

  12. Amazing nighttime pictures and words Mikaliah! you are a single shadow upon the obscure land; standing still where your wandering feet stopped,
    but you're not alone. your mind whirls with thoughts, creating images before your far-gazing eyes.
