The Tall Tale
"It's what's inside that counts," she said, "but what about when you're inside out?"
She knew the answer they'd all give. Birds and butterflies only know the one. A single truth they live and breathe. On display for all to see. Their symphony of fluttering wings that hum with meaning springtime brings. Winter too. No matter the season, their hum stays true.
As she leaned through the window again, she envied them. Their intricate simplicity. Their surety. That timeless hum of infinity, tuned to the echoes of eternity. And all she could hear was uncertainty. Wondering where her inside ends and outside begins, because endings are beginnings in disguise, after all...
What she knows for sure is she's happiest here, between the two. Feeding roses her special brew of space steeped in thyme, sage and stardust. Filtered through the same sublime chaos directing their symphony. Fertilised by the overripe questions she'll never answer.
