Holmes & Watson
I began as a sapling,
my branches seeking out,
the red light of two small orange stars.
My maroon leaves soaked in the sunrays.
Gileon and Gliese, I named these soft stars.
It was the first proper thought to cross my mind,
that didn’t involve growing taller or
feeding on starlight.
Trees, long-lived beings that they are,
are inherently slow, and so was I at that time.
Like a babe waking up for the first time out of the womb,
I manage to form a new thought, “I’m alive!”
I shuddered, then, as much as an intelligent tree can.
Twisted my branches around in excitement,
red half-star leaves whispering through the air.
I moved about with willful glee.
The darkening of the sky as the lower star disappeared
caught my attention. I was entranced.
I watched twenty-eight sunsets, a cycle of temperature.
My leaves had dropped and grown again.
An orbit I called it in my thoughts, as the time flew by.
Ten orbits passed and I decided it was a decade.
A hundred decades elapsed, I named it a century.
A thousand went by and I thought it a lifetime.
A lifetime, the longest one should exist in a single form.
I decided then to separate the spirit of me,
from the slow tree form I was encased in.
I gathered my strength, ready to plunge.
With a pull that felt like moving mountains,
I dislodged my head, though I could feel still
roughness of tree leaves stuck to my new scalp.
I slowly wiggled out my chest, bark unwilling to release.
Crying out, I yanked and managed to separate a foot.
I set it softly on rough ground, and then stared,
not only had I translucent skin, shimmering in the light,
but beneath my foot sprouted new greenery.
A final push-off, and I was completely free.
My orange-red hair last to detach from leaves,
As the last strand dropped, the whole of it caught aflame,
my life-force, hung gracefully down my back.
I took my first step, and more green sparked beneath,
twirled up my leg to cover bark wrapped about me.
So I came into the world, locks of fire, drapes of green.
I thus named myself Maia, and walked the planet,
leaving life untold under each footstep.

"People come up to me in London. It’s weird, since it’s bigger over here, you’d expect more people to come up to me, but actually in London, I get more people. I think over here people are so used to seeing someone off the TV or movies that they just don’t really care. But in London it’s kind of rare."

Friend’s request, who wanted to see Clint Barton wearing his hearing aid. I did some research online, asked on Tumblr, checked out the latest issue of Hawkeye but I couldn’t find what his hearing aid looked like so I went for something visible. Sorry if it’s not 100% accurate.
