„(…) O my Gildéd Cage! for thee — not only have I sojourn’d — forbye got my stay fanciéd! — still! My question as sheeny glimmereth! for thou — my refuge, my drought quench’d thro’ thy goblet, my delightsome aliment! abroad want I be not — howbeit the accouchement meaneth attachment — ne’er slavery nor servance — behead me not — for I still adore thee! tho” the various canvas calleth me — O my Gildéd Cage! for thee — not only have I sojourn’d — forbye got my stay fanciéd! — still! My question as sheeny glimmereth! — overcloudéd or overshinéd? — might I leave providing — my return I shall plight?”
— ”As the entire globe was put to the test within the onset of the year 2020, and even longer so, because the consequences are and will certainly still be noticeable for a further span of time, it was a brilliant opportunity at least for to re-think the purpose of ours as the inhabitants of the Earth, our relation to it, as well as to one another, and to us ourselves. Can our tragedy help the nature? Could it ever betide the other way round? Are we entwined mayhap? What is the essence of a journey we are not yet allowed for to revive in a literal sense, but only either in our memories of the days of yore, or our imaginary world? We have only just returned from the moonlit excursion for to be locked, yet the coil once touched does not have to remain so anymore, and the escapade of our lives might still be yet to commence. In spite of it all, it might do just right now. Take my hand and let’s figure out the low-down of those peaks and chasms — into metaphors and verities enchanted, even if the enchantment itself also can be treacherous sometimes.” — Katarzyna Neczek [May 28th, 2021]

I’m a 20-year-old English language poet raised and living in Poland. Even though paraplegic due to heart’s surgery failure in 2002, never losing hope and inspiration to live a good life and create along with sharing my writing with other people. Personally a huge dog lover.
