the rambling woman

stuck in my head, sometimes okay here. also at akharlamova.com

You know, I don’t have much but I have everything I need. I’ve been learning the “take it all a day at a time, feed your soul, do good deeds” philosophy, and… I still have nothing figured out. But I don’t need to anymore. I have today. That’s enough.

what i want is to be
aware of the spaces between stars, to breathe
continuously the sources of sky,
a veined sail moving,
my love never setting
foot to the dark
anvil of earth
