Become the Uncanny

I know the darkness dancing in my gaze, how the rained-on-muddy-brown that fills my eyes is drunk on midnight and secrets. I glance at your face and feel… the need to invite your soul-tellers to look inside my heart. Can you see what blooms in there? The parts of me (growing deep-deep-deep), the pieces that mirror the bits you (almost) never show to the world? I see you, know you… because strange takes time to find itself. I searched for you and found you because the world is broken, slightly rotten… and I can’t fix it alone.

I’m using my weird
to kick impossible’s butt—
hope is exotic.
Let’s become the uncanny
change that makes happy the norm.

  1. While its impossible to pull apart your tanka-bun, for its resonates so well : text and tanka
    Still i want to highlight this bit which leaves me impressioned:

    “look inside my heart. Can you see what blooms in there? The parts of me (growing deep-deep-deep), the pieces that mirror the bits you (almost) never show to the world? I see you, know you… because strange takes time to find itself.”

    A good Tuesday to you

    much love…

  2. I love this!❤️ Such passion, such feeling in your words.. especially; “I searched for you and found you because the world is broken, slightly rotten… and I can’t fix it alone.” Beautifully executed!❤️

  3. I would love happy to be the norm, but we need some darkness too to see the light. Love your thoughts and sending positive energy

  4. I find myself drawn to the phrase “hope is exotic..” to me “exotic” represents a far off (mostly unobtainable) dream, but then that probably reveals more about my “strange” than yours 🙂 XXX

  5. I glance at your face and feel… the need to invite your soul-tellers to look inside my heart.

    This need really resonates with me.

  6. Magaly, my mom says I’m very organized too and too much detailed! LOL! You should see me gardening! LOL! I’m sending you lots of energy!! Thank you for saying I work a lot. Actually, this year, I can’t believe the stuff I have done, but then I look at the calendar and it’s already Nov. 10th! Boy the year has went by so fast! It’s crazy! But, it’s been a great year and I am so thankful! Big Hugs 🙂
