Maya Joelle

but the men signed of the cross of Christ
go gaily in the dark

G.K. Chesterton, The Ballad of the White Horse

Cathedral: a collection

poetry and creative prose about beauty in the midst of grief and joy in the face of great sorrow

oh brave one,
oh broken, beautifully brave one,
remember that no matter how tiny the fragments this time,
how far apart they are scattered,
how long you must search,
he will help you find the pieces of the person you once were
and the image you once bore.

about me

classics student, bookdragon, wordsmith, forest girl, incurable romantic

seeking to adorn the dark with my words and kindle hearts with legendary fire

looking for beauty in the ordinary
