colours of le carnivale ~

{sometimes in the dreaming we discover}

i caught a thought & held it for an afternoon,
then let it float up, up out the window
on paisley ribbons & soar
higher than it had ever been.
i had hoped to follow it, but
soon found it lying on a patch
of wild strawberries,
fragrant with traces of heaven
& rain.

{how dreamful!}

of this i need:

a colour palette brimming with the vivacious, today.

afternoon treasures,
of sketching
& foraging
& lingering
& sweetness

this afternoon we had a little outing, of babies feeding babies, of dolls that smell so sweet, of little red berries on trees, & soft winds blowing gentle thoughts upon them, of reclining on the lawn with a book & an adequate  pencil, of smiles & shining & sunshine {& missing  you O!!!}

~ afternoon speculation.. .

{under a canopy of sunshine & leaves}

as we sat upon the mossy hours of these captivating moments
{an expanse of afternoon, before the evening came}
the trees shone sparkles
all around us
that floated
like glitterbugs chasing laughter

today is another palest shell pink day,
because i am astonished anew everytime i catch a glimpse of this little pot of posies on the kitchen bench, & my heart leaps a little, & remembers beauty{that it is, that it can be, if sought & through helping one another}

hearts & hugs
{& the Royal Law [how i love that its royal!!!]
"If ye fulfil the royal law acording to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well!" James 2:8}

dew from the sky{that lands on my heart.. .}



the beauty of nature never ceases to amaze me.. .
yesterday there were puddles of sunshine resting on the clouds,
& this morning is a crimson starlight glow, {the pink sun is rising & the last lingering star twinkles still on the horizon, wrapping my heart in a rainbow}
wishing gentle breezes for you today!!!

{dainty surroundings}


sometimes i can't think in grammar & prose,
sometimes the lexicon of beauty is all thats available to me
lovely thoughts pretties

a tiny photoshoot.. .{& the river's soft song}


today we went to the river.
in the gentle glow of the sun
& the warmth of the rivers warble,
we dreamed of days of loveliness & hoped for autumn rain

splendid you.

& smiles

{& a poem, from here}


If I could pull from you
the child you were,
I would rock her gently in my arms,
and hold her hand
until it stops shaking.
I would sing soporific lullabies,
leave the light on
all night,
and whisper, “I love you,”
before I close the door.
She would not sleep
in a dark corner that reeks of booze
and sweat, or wince
at every sound.
I would send her to school
in a brand-new dress
and shiny Mary-Janes,
so her classmates wouldn’t snicker
or exclude her from their games
of hopscotch and tag.
She wouldn’t have to wear
long-sleeved sweaters, in the summer,
to hide the bruises from home.
I would make sure
she was happy and knew love;
then I would lay her in your arms,
and we would watch her sleep
