soft edges :: Imaginary Keith

I’ve heard of people who can’t live without the sunlight, but I’m fine with the constant clouds rolling slowly overhead, tumbling along in the gray light, the sun more concept then reality as it draws my shadow on the sidewalk with such soft edges that I can finally bear to stare at it without questioning what it is to be a man; I lived in the sunlight once, and it hurt, no matter which way I turned my head.

As Henry tumbled head over heels, the air rushing by faster and faster as he passed through the clouds—up, down, he couldn’t tell—and their wet, cold dew leapt onto him, clinging to his skin and clothes, he realized just how easy stepping off of the precipice of enlightenment had been, and even though he had not a single clue where he was going or what awaited him at the end of his tumble—if indeed there was an end, or if indeed it was really he that tumbled and not the world around him, although at this point he somehow knew instinctively that it mattered very little—he closed his eyes, smiling, arms folded lightly across his chest as the roar of the universe gradually faded, lower and dimmer until finally all that Henry could hear was the warm silent welcome of his return home.

Dim Light :: Keith

Walking around in that dim light I felt like the clouds were thinking about taking a nap, and that they’d just fall out of the sky right then and there, straight down, blanketing everything that couldn’t move, including me.

Peter's mother didn't mind if he filled his balloons with fluffy white clouds, but she would frown at Peter very big when he filled one with rain clouds and popped it over his sister's head, especially if they were in the house.
