Subtle Energy

This crystal wasn't always perched on my windowsill. I had it by my desk, perhaps for good luck or inspiration for writing. That's another thing: I have no clue what it means or what its use is. Is it a crystal or a stone? Do they all heal and protect? I'm not much of a crystal person so I wouldn't know. A little while ago, my friend and yogi extraordinaire Sophie came to town. We did the usual: a little yoga here, a little sushi there and caught up on each others' lives. She also gave my crystal a new home by the light. And I haven't moved it since. Maybe she thought it belonged closer to the sky, collecting rays and beams from the outside world as opposed to cooped up in the corner with school supplies. In the grand scheme of things, it didn't travel very far but in the tiny space of my apartment its new spot made a difference. Anyway, Sophie was right in taking charge. It rained the other day, giving my whole place that soft, slow look. There wasn't much light refracting off the crystal but there was still a rainbow inside.
