Qasida of the Rose

The rose

was not looking for the dawn:

almost eternal on its stem,

it looked for something else.

The rose

was not looking for science or shadow:

confine of flesh and of dream,

it looked for something else.

The rose

was not looking for the rose.

Through the sky, immobile,

it looked for something else.

-Federico Garcia Lorca


A few years ago I was consumed by my writing. Sadly, I lost sight of that for a while after entering high school. It's only recently that I've begun to revisit FictionPress and all of my old work. Now that I'm a senior, my writing consists of far too many college application essays. Hopefully I'll get my life back soon, and find inspiration again to resume writing. My passion has been slowly fading, and it's about time it was rekindled.
