We all arrive by different streets,
by unequal languages, at Silence.

Pablo Neruda, from “Still Another Day: XVII/Men”

(via litverve)

what i want is to be
aware of the spaces between stars, to breathe
continuously the sources of sky,
a veined sail moving,
my love never setting
foot to the dark
anvil of earth

Pat Lowther, from “Random Interview,” in Time Capsule (with thanks to a-pair-of-ragged-claws)

it took me time to realize that the sky changes just as quickly as i do so i’m sorry for everything

Greek Mythology:  Athena (Ἀθηνᾶ)

Athena, also spelled Athene, was the Greek goddess of wisdom, war, the arts, industry, justice and skill. She was the favorite child of Zeus. She had sprung fully grown out of her father’s head. Her mother was Metis, goddess of wisdom and Zeus’ first wife. In fear that Metis would bear a son mightier than himself. Zeus swallowed her and she began to make a robe and helmet for her daughter. The hammering of the helmet caused Zeus great pain in the form of headaches and he cried out in agony. Skilled Hephaestus ran to his father and split his skull open and from it emerged Athena, fully grown and wearing her mother’s robe and helmet. x
