“here.” they say. “you are better now.” the chains are gone. and the nature has grown and there is no more pain to store here any more. they have given words like peace. like sanity. like this reality is the best it could ever be. like this is the best we could ever have. the lips …
there is a weight to the way the eyes follow. a loudness to stillness of the heart. a softness to the fall. again. and again. © Hudson Biko Photograph by Ashley Bean
The lights are falling into pools of moonlight dripping across the night sky. The windows are rolled down. The music is playing. The time is still. You are there. I am here. There is a comfort in the loudness of the silence. This is it. © Hudson Biko
Launched 17 January 2017, Pieced By HB is a space dedicated to the expression of the thoughts, emotions and ideas that are always echoing in the echelons we call minds.
- “assemble something from individual parts.”
- “a thing considered as … an element of a larger thing”
When I began this blog in late January, it was always with the idea that it would evolve and grow – just as I do.
During its first week, I published two essays. There was no poetry. There were no musings. It was just this one thing that I was going to do every other week – until I figured out what would come next.
Over time, all those things have not only become a part of this platform but the person I am today – even though I never really saw it coming.
And in it’s own way, I really enjoy that. I think that it’s part and parcel of our own metamorphosis to challenge the bounds of what we think possible. To piece all these smaller parts of ourselves into something greater.
And in many ways, that’s exactly what I want this platform to represent. Parts pieced together to form something that’s trying to form itself.
Thank you for being here.
