Freezing Over

Somewhere a version of you

Is finally able to fix

A broken violin

As the night outside

Turns emerald green

And the fire grows cold

In the fireplace,

And you wonder

If throwing silent,

Winter nights into disarray

By sending out notes

Of a newly repaired

Time-worn violin

Will be a huge mistake?

For life may be full

Of trivial affairs,

But something colossal

Is always at stake.


β€œand then I decided I was a lemon for a couple of weeks.”
Douglas Adams

  1. This one really carries some weight. The final lines “But something colossal / Is always at stake…” seem so heavy with expectancy and absolute truth. It really does feel like something huge may be just around the corner, and we should take care lest we awaken it. Fortunately, this isn’t always the case, and for good reason: if it were, I’m sure I’d have already destroyed the world with my ineptitude at some point! πŸ˜€ Oh well. This is seriously a stunning piece of writing, Aaysid. It’s well worth several readings. Also, the Douglas Adams quote is hilarious. Great writing, my friend! πŸ™‚
