When the clouds roll in, I feel an affinity to the ground. I'm one with the soil, the rock, the grass. Because I look at the clouds and the first thing I realize is how different from me they are. Wafts of smoke, walls of haze that block the sun instead of becoming illuminated. But most of all, the clouds are always changing in one way or another. As the wind tosses them over the mountains, they change shape and imitate animals and items, but are never more than a mirage. Or, when it's their time, they swell with sweat and release themselves through water, leaping towards the earth for which they longed, and disappear.
Today isn't that day. The clouds coated the blue sky thick and completely, sapping all color from above the trees and the cemetery. I can hardly tell shadows apart from substance. October is a test to see who can hold on to their color and who is not up to the challenge. Already I see the brown leaves scattered and galloping down the streets, the remnants of those already defeated. Dry and shriveled, brittle and easy to crush, that is what I am during the winter when the humidity is sucked from my lungs and replaced with the affect of a stinging, dusty twig along the inside of my throat. My guitar warps, and melodies sound a bit sadder during the fall.
Whether things were better in prelapsarian or post-, I do not know. But neither could have been worse than during the fall.
What a way to describe it.. I would like to experience the four seasons for a change thought. I think I may love it. Heh » Xboyz

I can't really read your post due to your layout, though highlighting them helpped a little. I like the way your describe stuff. » Nuttz

Sorry, I forgot that CSS filters don't work with Firefox, and thus had a transparency on the main div that I didn't realize was still there. It's fixed. » adam
