To Speak Of The Wind

A poem inspired by the exploration of deep and uncertain things.

To Speak Of The Wind

I am the wind,

Carrying, Carrying,


The copper sea floods me from ear to ear,

Resilient in the space between the eye and the brow,

The constitute parts of the flowing narrative

Resting in the anxious knowing of how.

Wake in your grass, leaves on your mouth

Drifting off in the nautilus south,

Dreaming inside the ghostly sheath,

Shadowed by the sweet Zagreus wreath.

Thumping, the wine draws through,

Round and round, thumping through,

Channeling the chalice of the crystal steer,

From in, the bloody blue,

From in, the timely true.

Fearless and framed, the lonely post is named,

Future and fame, the wooded plot is found,

Standing strong, a summer moon,

Falling over, the drapery rune,

Deeply, we hide beneath,

Lemmings dotting the winter spoons.

Onto grey, our image projects,

For it is the neutral stone you most reject.

Balance the jester, the sexual hues,

Knitting the father of the spools,

Loving the mother of the fools.

Heartful homes, we regress, true,

Paining presence, we repress, sooth

Mantled shadow over the fireplace blue:

Blackberries read in ignorant dues.

Lovely tears, yet fearless true:

I most admire you.

Resilient waves, thundering caves,

I speak of you too,

For it is through the wind, wrapping round and round,

Round and through:

That I,

That I most carry you.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
