heart shaped tights and easter.

  Hello to the moon on Easter's Eve,
I hope your lips are dripping in chocolate goodies. I hope your fingers are weakened from pressing paint into boiled eggs. I hope your feet are yawning from seeking sugar treats. I woke up this morn, hoping to find a dwarf bunny beneath my cotton sheets.  Instead, I found old socks, and wondered how I became such a mess. 


I am filling my cup with happiness. The Spring has drawn yellow splatters along the dirt. The snow is cloaked underneath oak trees. The meadows are dry. The river ways are flowing. The faucets are pouring water to cool our insides.  I have long, and lonely, awaited to hug the summery bone.  My arms are open with the breadth of ocean, and I'm plucking smiles from the heat.


   I wandered through the tongue of land today, walking by hills and rich estates.  As I parted my feet, and walked, I witnessed smiling teeth. The sidewalks were filled by bodies.  Spring isn't only made beautiful by seedlings, gardens, and tropic weather..  The fruit of summer lies in the mix and mingle of the human race.   At winter's beak, we are kept secrets. Unseen by earth's plants, hidden from people.  We are shrouded by curtains,  afraid to be nipped by frost.     
 
Winter seeks permanent dusk. A dusk that hides star beams, and moon glow.   When the ground breaks beneath me, and spring widens, we open our curtains, and happy babies are born.


There are many things I cherish. And many things I spend too often, dabbling about.  This includes starry lights, spring blossoms, bearded boys, and breakfast.      
 
The goodness of a whole wheat bagel, salted egg, and turkey bacon.   The daily coffee, dots of vanilla cream, and pinkie pressed white sugar. Then,  to help my mom prepare for a dinner date,   we cut boiled eggs, and stirred yolk, celery, cayan pepper, mayo, salt, and onion. Tickled tummy feelings. 


I'm going to explore the grasslands, and bow to the tree bark. Then I'll munch on chocolate till my belly is sore.  Happy Easter xx
