Bloggers’ Bliss — See our streetwear come to life

resolve | karin taylor

half notes jumbled from exposure to the sunlight
intermingle with the pretty structure dangling near the window
like something half heard, half disclosed, half spoken, half written
filtered by crepe paper folds and pale aqua tones
crayoned and coarse, you beguile me with your presence
yet your essence is benign and you do not feign love or attraction
meekly you make your presence unfelt, almost unseen
yet I am your devoted audience of one
I have succumbed to the charms of a floating paper jellyfish
in the mid of morning’s light, strung from the ceiling on a fishing line of invisibility, so that you are ghostly and perhaps I
attribute a divine nature to you, or suggest something like it
knowing full-well you only exist on paper, and are but a reminder
of all that glows in the sea and the intricacies of nature
and all that splendid order of things, in which this eats that
depending on hierarchy in the chain and who bore who
I lack understanding and cognisance of things I wish I knew more about, will go above and beyond to premise a moment in time where
I am fully with knowledge and birth understanding, would walk through
flames to glean wisdom, but all I have is my birthright, intuition
it will get me through, as it has always done and had to….
I will not lay down and die, no, I will fight, for I was born to
Few things I can say of myself, but that I have a temperament that
will not diminish or give up, despite the great trials and imagined
fears. I have rivals and I have enemies, but although I count my
friends on one hand, I can be a strength and a powerful force for good. Although I fail, my endeavours and deliberation, my perseverance must count for something toward my goal. No, I will not be told otherwise, and I will not compromise my view. Hell may abound and break lose upon me, but I will not give up. Oh how quickly my attention was averted from your presence, I look at you again, and marvel at the thoughts that led me to think of other than you, thank you little jellyfish for strengthening my resolve.
