“Sometimes the clouds weren't weightless. Sometimes their bellies got dark and full. It was life. It happened.

We'd get rained on together. Knowing Braden he'd have a big ass umbrela to shelter us from the worst of it. That there was an uncertain future I could handle.”

I did not know that the wind could be tender, like hands as they caress - what did I know - until now?”

“Love, be
mystical

as the flickering
blue flame
of night

as the fully-awoken
moon

beneath cobwebs
of passing clouds

amidst chanting
high-tides

fuzzy,
as my blanket

big enough
to illuminate a hundred
thousand billion galaxies

and just small enough to fit
into my embrace.”
Sanober Khan, Turquoise Silence

The sky had become a glistening tapestry of stars.”
