Inspired by and in Loving Memory of Jordie Rietveld (from the Six Crows Duology by Leigh Bardugo)

Belonging, retired rhythm, heart on fire, vital, tidal, exhaling the music of life...

A breath tightly gasped, a fist tightly grasped. Reapers Barging into this safe space, this place of filth—

Port water doesn't cleanse...

Zyklon’s Cyclone—bereft scorn, toxic gas, fatal fumes, angry wounds...

Drowning and inhaling—perhaps this time past the watery grave—he speaks truth.

You thought pain was your weakness?" -Jordie Rietveld

Well, wasn’t it?

You thought vengeance was the answer, and still you drown." -Jordie Rietveld

for from it flow the springs of life. Proverbs 4:23

You guard against pain. You guard against joy. But when you allow yourself to be blindsided by love, two worlds make a universe." -Sankt Suntsa Sar

And yet, at the end of it all, these
three remain: faith, hope, and love.
But the greatest of these is love.
