The Woman In White Said – 2. About the Difference

It’s flabbergasting,

like horse-dumplings on the highway.

It’s irritating,

like the ever-returning fly-blanket on a picnic.

It’s poignant,

like the dame’s fur-coat in the Opera.

It’s unfailing,

like axolotls festering at the rise of darkness.

It’s helpless,

like a porcelain hone hanging from the wall.

It’s a modest virtue,

as the laureate wiseman living in poverty.

It’s moving,

as the shoal stirrs at the snap of the reptiles.

It’s natural,

as laughter jetting through the teeth-fence.

Yet it’s light,

as the antelope looking down from the ledge.

At the end it’s tranquil,

as the alabaster jar broken for the funeral.

Joy is incomprehensible.

(I was grinning all day long:

you said, I am beautiful.

When someone else says that,

I just snarl in silence.)

Me and My Muse

Welcome to my blog! 🙂

Here I write about books, bookish stuff, bookshelves, reading and writing, poetry and philosophy, my own poetry and philosophy, faith, poems and about my upcoming book(s).

By the way, Fairygamaw isn’t me. My name is Johanna, I’m a freelance writer, I write mainly fantasy/sci-fi. I imagined FG and she imagined (or re-imagined) me. She (sometimes he) is my so-called muse, but (s)he doesn’t like this expression – it’s too Greek. (S)he’s rather fairy-like, a giant, fearsome dragonfly, blue-ish, green-ish, sometimes benevolent, sometimes malevolent. I had to tame her/him into my book, otherwise (s)he would’ve whispered my whole life into a chaotic, dusky mess.

But I have to give credit to him/her. So thank you, my muse-fairy! Danke!
