WHAT AM I?: Nephilim WHAT AM I?: Nephilim
A teen boy gets killed, but trades his soul for another chance. He changes. A girl notices the new boy with silver eyes.
Powder

Powder

A Chapter by Ana Papaya

.

"



Some roam cornfields 
or tall grass 
searching for treasures
buried deep within 
but I have felt the cool mist 
upon my skin 
as I left my mark 
upon uncharted ground 
and know there to be 
no greater high 
than there on earth 
where stone meets sky
where I lose myself 
in powder.

Well, as much fun as that looks...and sounds, I will never know. Of course, jumping out of an airplane has to be pretty close, and I have done that.

A good snowball fight sounds good right now, though.

There's something deeply spiritual about the snow. I can only imagine (having not skied or boarded) how much that is exponentially raised when one skims atop the crisp whiteness - spritual like the experiences of surfers perhaps? Idk.
Theres a spiritual aspect like that here at work Ana.
It makes the reader want to get out and enjoy the snow. Great job!

it is a great feeling and you would probably love it!
You've got a style I love to read.

This one's crisp, like cold air at altitude... it becomes what you make of it.

"stone meets sky"

There is a song called "Where the sea meets the sky"... I don't know why but it's kind of an obscure song. I'll post a (borderline creepy) version on your main page

Thanks, I'm happy you like my style! Thanks for the kind words. :)
Love this babe :) We do have great fields and slopes, the central plateau here in the North Island reminds me of Marmot. The South Island slopes are our Whistler. Auckland doesn't get snow sadly and the plateau is a bit of a drive. I'd love for Curtis to enjoy the experience as much his dad and I do. He's probably more inclined to surfing though. I bleated on a tad.

Canada was such great place to live. Dope poem, gave me good feels, invigorating, colourful & crisp writing. R xo

It is the last sport on my to do list, as snow, ice, cold are not welcome in my world. Saying that after reading your poem, I have now been.
To the usual very high standard Franz Klammer. Ski on........

Thx Bala!!!
Ahh, now I can relate to this, being from another country the great sun gods show complete disdain for.... I am not the best skier, but love snowboarding and rattling around on a snowmobile is super awesome funtime. I did both on a trip to Sweden a few years back and it was only after doing so that I began to notice their availability here. It certainly is a novel way of getting a different perspective of what you thought were well known scenes. Snow makes everything look different, but even more so when your zipping around it at speed.
Love the leaving your mark line, there is something special too about being the first steps in the snow. Love it. :)

The cold of Winter. Does create different needs and wonder. I like the description. You made the cold of Winter seem okay. Nice flow of thoughts led to very nice ending. Thank you dear friend for sharing the excellent poetry.

Happy to inspire through my words, that is the best compliment.
rosy cheeks, crisp cold air, the speed of downhill if snowboarding... you put us right there in the thrill of powder and the fun of being the one to leave fresh tracks in the clean snow... nice one Papaya..
