At first, you mistake it for dust caught in a beam of sunlight. A glittering red thing that serpentines through the air, translucent and fluttering. But then you see it again, and again. Watching while you water your plants. Dancing above you while you read a book.
When it nears you while you work at your computer, you hesitantly hold out a finger. It spirals down to land, the barest feather-touch. An eel-like thing with flowing fronds. It sniffs you, then gives a tiny sneeze.
I would never do this to you. 🤥

PS Go Eagles!

Sublime: "Nature’s immensity is our immensity; its seeming infinity is our infinity too."
"At once tiny and huge: what is this feeling we call 'sublime'?"
I like rain.
