Love and Rain

There are more ways
to say I love you, than
drops of rain in the sky.

A Haiku

Why does every video game
need to have giant spiders, and
why the sewer levels?

Songs and Roses

You sing to me to leave my regrets
behind, in the shadows cast by
my past, and friends left behind.

The stained glass of your monastery
changes your silver robes to shimmering
rainbows, and you shine with Light, my love.

Your songs fill my dreams
with peace, and pale rose petals
unfurling, these are flowers of hope.

My Sunday So Far…

What I was going to do: a tarot reading to check in and see how things are going in the Otherworld

What I got: told that I’m seen as totally human Here, and to stop certain habits that help supply my anxiety that everything is going to blow up in my face

A Shared Dream of Blindness

My Love, you have no eyes now
and you lean on me for sight;
even in my own blindness,

I guide you through our home–
you know it perfectly well, but to
lose your sight again cuts deep.

Even in this dream state, I feel your
anguish at something so precious lost;
Blind King, you will see again when you wake.

WIP Wednesday, Simple Gifts Scarf

I’ve found that I like having two knitting projects going at once; one that’s somewhat mindless so I can watch TV or listen to music while working on it, and one that’s more complex.

This one is–despite the first section being garter stitch, and the second being stockinette–my more complex project (the easy one is a gift for a family member Here.) The yarn is an amazingly soft merino/silk/baby alpaca blend, and it’s my first “high end” yarn purchase.  I am in love with this yarn, not only does it feel wonderful to knit with, the fabric is just as soft as the yarn.

The pattern is the Beginner’s Stitch Sampler Scarf [link] and Jake was the one who chose the pattern.  The pattern has been modified slightly so that each square is slightly less than 6 inches long (I did this because I only have two skeins of this yarn) but I like the perfect squares so far.

Right now I’m at the basket weave stitch section, which is a new stitch to me.  I try to learn something new with every knitting project, and this pattern requires learning three new stitches.  So far I am loving this project.

Light of Home

Light plays across the puzzle you’re
working on, and you laugh as I tease you,
that you’re in Dracula cosplay mode.

This is a place where we are not Kings
we are simply Beloveds, and that is all
that matters, in this moment, this dream.

This is where we’re meant to be,
in the light of the library fire, and
our daughter asleep in our arms.
