A Soul’s Metamorphosis

A Soul’s Metamorphosis

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Receiving
the gift of life, ink washes
into clouds in the sky —
   From black to white
   I transform; a butterfly.

* * *
Wishing for change in your life can feel like weathering a storm upon a small, paper boat; yet, if you cling to those flimsy edges, who knows what the horizon will bring you?

Love, Kiyo

Riches to Keep

Riches to Keep

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Tender treasures
are kept inside this little
heart-shaped box of mine —
Upon life’s changing journey
these memories I will hold

* * *
Love, it’s a cornerstone for all that we become; our interconnections with family, friends, lovers, leaving traces like living memoirs in your heart.

Love, Kiyo

A Place Familiar

A Place Familiar

Poem from the Handwritten series.

There’s a whisper
in the trees, that tells me
I’ve been here before —
Following its soft echo,
I wander into past days

* * *
The slightest thing can ripple through your mind and awake those memories; some days I ignore them, and on others I happily let it take me by the hand.

* * *
Welcome to this first upload in my new Handwritten series (: As the title easily gives away, these poems have indeed been written by hand, but are also staged, photographed and edited (by me); it’s a new, creative endeavour I’m looking forward to sharing with you, which is incredibly fun to work at! But, do not worry, the presentation may be different, my words have not changed — and I can only hope you will all enjoy these new uploads, too (:

Love, Kiyo
