strands of the future float
among the ancient stars
grains of this perfect universe lost
in its own pocket

lonely dreaming circle
rolling through space
where the weight of the world
finds a shoulder

moonlit planets race through the open sea
of faceless galaxies reaching for the light

darkness drinks up the void
tumbles breathlessly between
miles of mute wonder

earth still spinning
in awe of creation

I'm Oksana—Communication major, shutterbug, occasional blogger, incessant doodler, graphic design geek, and writer of sentimental prose. I am quite content to spend an afternoon with a pencil, a few blank Moleskine pages, and a playlist of indie folk. I love musical theatre, black-&-white movies, and Eastern European illustration. Conversations with strangers make my day. When it rains, I make a beeline for my mug of green tea and stack of 19th-century fiction. I'm vegetarian about 98% of the time. I'm extremely awkward and rather nerdy. I love the sea. My name means 'hosanna' and I'm having the time of my life living to praise the One who set me free.
