the snow is refracting the sun’s rays
with an indistinct yellow aura –
shades of blues and greens surround me
as i walk through these woods
happy little trees dance in the breeze
and i long to feel as free as these
tiny specs floating through the air
as the weight of the snow gets too heavy for the trees
and they just let go.
with each step i flee farther from
the terror of attachment
the heartache of feeling
and the deplorable design of letting anyone other than sorrow hold my heart.
yet, i always take pause at the beauty in gaia’s colours –
the dark and light somehow finding a way to be extraordinary
and, i am left,
wandering through this glistening forest,
wondering if i will ever be as simple as the snow

Kit is an introvert who’s creativity is expressed through multiple mediums.

For a long time, they’ve struggled with accepting themselves for who they are, and it’s their dream to create a space in the world where everyone is free to be themselves – even if it’s just while reading a poem.
