Listen carefully, for I am plucking spider-web harp strings in the light of your glistening, rain-sodden breath. There is such beauty in this city, and in symphony, you see—so keep rhythm with these skeleton trees dancing on street sides, winter branches quivering. Can you hear the beat of your heart? Its cadence is being matched by that of the shadows, ephemeral figures waltzing hand-in-hand across cobblestones and twirling at the very cusp of the lamp posts' soft glow...

          Sway now, my dearest, to the allure of this chorus in the night; to the echoing sound of this moonlit sonata.
(Lointain – comes from the French phrase "Comme un echo lointain,"
"Like a distant echo." It indicates that the music should sound like
it's coming from (or belongs in) the background.)

Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh :faint:

Unreal.

I am working on something, editing a story, and this, THIS, this beautiful work feels so close to it. There are key elements so relatable to all of it! I keep seeing beautiful things like this, and visuals that keep me motivated for something I have been working so hard on for two years. It even mentions something similar about "skeletal trees" and the moonlit sonata. Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful words! I am so happy to have read this tonight. Now I feel I just must work on it! :heart:

Oh my goodness! Thank you so much. :love:

How ironic. I'm so glad this has helped inspire you to keep working on your masterpiece! I
certainly know how difficult is to keep motivated, particularly when a certain project drags
out. I can't wait to read it if you ever post it. :heart::heart:
