all_strange_wonders: An illustration of Nita from the Young Wizards story "Uptown Local". (do not attempt)
Hello, old friend.

In other news, I really wish I could post some pictures of the shawl I'm working on, because I'm quite pleased with how it's going. Unfortunately, it's shaped by increasing to the point, which makes absolutely no sense in print. Trust me, though, it works. It's actually pretty neat. Anyway, the side effect of this is that it's pretty much impossible to spread it out for a picture without circulars a couple of yards long. Soon I'll be to the lace part, which will be scary-exciting, and then I'll probably have to stop knitting in class.

right…so, there was no horrible outcry against me posting my writing, so here some is. bit rough, etc.


Self-Portrait

I have been a stone
an errant breeze
a fathomless ocean
the bright leaping of a flame.
I have been the stars
and the endless night in which they sleep.
I have been the rose
and the thorn.

Now I am a tangle-
a snarled shred of wool
snagged on a rough stone wall.
I might be gold
or perhaps I am only straw,
no fairy tale to change me
into smooth and shining thread.

I am the song that circles round to its beginning,
unending and unresolved.
I am Ouroboros, the snake
who began to eat her own tail
(her tale, her song, her only story)
and having begun
can never stop.
