chillywolves:

shadow and bone by leigh bardugo

This was his soul made flesh, the truth of him laid bare in the blazing sun, shorn of mystery and shadow. This was the truth behind the handsome face and the miraculous powers, the truth that was the dead and empty space between the stars, a wasteland peopled by frightened monsters.

go back in time, say,
no, little girl,
don’t touch the stove, it’s
too hot and the next morning will taste
of hospitals and your brother will say,
“i told you so”

undo the first moment you were
so sad that the inside of your arms
begged to remember what the sky looked like,
tell your body that blood belongs buried
instead of coursing down your thighs,

undo easter sunday
where you finally snapped and said
“you make me want to die”
undo how you made
your little sister cry

go back in time say, “you will fall
but he will forget to catch you,”
kiss your forehead, say,
“but it gets better,”

go back in time,
show off your healed body where
only kindness grows, a forest where used
to only be wasteland, hold
yourself close and say,
“it’s going to be bad for a long time
but i swear to god
it is so worth staying that even
poets don’t have words”

undo the damage boys did, undo
the skipped meals and “accidents,” undo the hours
of staring at a wall waiting to disappear, undo
the words of girls, undo failed tests, undo
never quite getting
enough
rest

go back in time, hold yourself
and when you come back from where you were
close your eyes and say goodbye

don’t look back anymore.
only go forwards now, only advance now, see,
in five years some version of you is so proud
of who you grew up
to be.

researchers who followed fourteen different elephant herds in western namibia for seven years have concluded that the animals have the ability to sense thunderstorms up to 186 miles away — most likely from rain system generated infrasound — and can predict approaching rain up to twelve days before it occurs.

western namibia is a vast expanse of land with a protracted dry season, and different herds in disparate locations, which desperately need the water and the vegetation that comes with it, will simultaneously change their migratory path, and pace, to head towards rain that is pending or falling great distances away.

this discovery could have major implications for conservation efforts, helping wildlife officials to better predict the location and movement of elephant herds sought by poachers. more than 100 thousand african elephants were killed for their ivory between 2010 and 2012, and with many experts estimating there to be no more than 400 thousand left, the animal could be extinct within the decade.

The Brightest Lights (feat. Mumford & Sons) - King Charles

the brightest lights cast the darkest shadows,
and that’s where I’ll be found,
for what’s hiding by the morning
will be chased by daylight’s hounds.
