A Winter Bend by Henrik Sundholm
A walk through the winter forest about a month ago. The snow has since thawed.

Nina stomped, or crept, or sauntered, the shadow eating at the edges of her mind, though the dark forest. The forest was near silent but for the crunch of her feet, the animals long since fled from the shadows.
He was like a beacon of light in the darkness, an old man sat in a clearing by a fire, calmly cooking casava, from the smell. He was appetising, and Nina didn’t want to find him appetising, but the shadow was so hungry and maybe, hopefully, it would stop eating at her if she found it something else to eat.
The old man looked up from his fire as she stepped into the clearing and he gave her a little smile, like he was happy to see a stranger. He beckoned her over to the fire.
‘Young one, eaten one,’ he said. ‘What foolishness have you been up to?’
Nina sat by the fire as the shadow tried to stretch across the light at the old man, but still it was trapped in her body. ‘I ate a shadow,’ she said.
These little moments in between the dread are so lovely. It makes me want to stay.
I Hear The Whispers
I hear the whispers of the crowd
They hover above, spitting on my head
Like birds of prey, quietly they shout
Rumors have wings to bury their dead
Arise, arise, above the raving raid
Look down below the spanning wings
As the wind will stir, fanning in aid
Dispersing the stench that I may sing
Sweet joy to stay above it all
Where the air is clean and free
Learn by experience, standing tall
These are shadows, they aren’t me

they‘re so pretty it hurts. i‘m not talking about boys. i‘m talking about girls.
“What is a ghost? A tragedy condemned to repeat itself time and again? A moment of pain, perhaps. Something dead which still seems to be alive. An emotion suspended in time. Like a blurred photograph. Like an insect trapped in amber.”
- Guillermo del Toro
