cloudless by Wendy Kwok

i have a head full
of love and a heart full of
sky to show for it.

i have a handful
of hurt and a mouthful of
birds to go with it.

their flight is painting
the story i could not speak;
you stole all my words.

Wendy Kwok, Scotland

Wendy K. is an undergraduate vet student who was born and raised in Hong Kong but now lives in Scotland for most of the year. Her major inspirations are the people around her but anything that makes her think or feel usually finds its way into her writing for reasons and by methods she cannot explain. She dislikes people coughing without covering their mouths, dishonesty and talking about herself in the third person; but she does enjoy eating chocolate ice-cream, reading voraciously, the smell of roses and learning about freeze fog or anything new. Her interests outside of writing include jewellery-making, piano-playing and metaphysical speculation.

Great image of letting the birds speak for you.
