There is a 50% chance of foreboding

How now, my love! why is your cheek so pale?
How chance the roses there do fade so fast?

HERMIA

Belike for want of rain, which I could well
Beteem them from the tempest of my eyes.

"My mother always closes her bedroom drapes tight
before going to bed at night.

I open mine as wide as possible.
I like to see everything, I say.
What’s there to see?

Moon. Air. Sunrise.
All that light on your face in the morning. Wakes you up.
I like to wake up."

Anne Carson, from “The Glass Essay”  (via heliophobus)

(I can’t do closed drapes/windows.)

"It was a noon enveloped in warm sunlight—it made you think that spring would truly come. A light wind was blowing, soft and gentle on the face. The trees on the street were beginning to sprout their tiny infant leaves. A thin veil of mist hung distantly in the pale blue sky far beyond the city."

— "Moonlight Shadow" by Banana Yoshimoto

The sunlight 

in his eyes

cuts through

the cold

just like

a knife

The current weather is…

The rain comes down in curtains before you have made your final bow. Winds 5mph from the NW.
