Why this?

The occasional piece of my own and a generous helping of others' creations I find inspiring. Site is named for a beloved book by one of my favorite writers, Italo Calvino, whose fanciful work lights--and delights--my soul.

From window seat,
wing stretching steel-
bold into blue.

I wonder who here
is leaving, how
many returning,

and a little about
the difference
between the two.

    And you? Leaving or returning?

  2. Hmm--literal or metaphorical sense?

    If literal--caught in between.

    Otherwise--both! Leaving certain things (thankfully) behind, which is directly related to returning 'home' to the awareness I think we all start out w/, regardless our inability to communicate it.
