teeth danced on rainbow moons

Good morning sweet Strawberry oatmeal. This is my galaxy.  Strawberries for planets. Fruit loops for moons. White sugar for hidden star clusters. And vanilla cream as dust.   


Monday's dawn begins.
A stretching week lies ahead. Full of good promise. And honey-eyed winks.
Before I can travel to the new week. I must wonder, and bask in the melting snow of the old week.
My week was drawn in pastels. The spring weather has blossomed, and the sweat of my brow is dripping by the heat.  When spring begins, so grows my inner teddy. I feel plush and stuffed with soft material.  Wanting to hug the unloved dirt, and sleep beside the bark of trees.  I sit pretty, belly full, and rich when I sit beneath a golden sun. 

I've spent my week playing vagabond.  My feet have not played traveler. But my brain has.  Through moon kissed hours, I've been wandering. Wandering through thoughts of now, then, and future bringings.  The sky is calling change from me. Not within me. But around me. There are friendflowers who do not blossom in my garden. There are weeds that must be plucked from my forest.  Cutting ties with friends is like watching water fall. It reserves your minutes. And makes you feel slow.   But after the water fall comes the prettiest flower. The lambs come out to play. And the fawns tickle the buds with their posy noses.  

For months, I have felt like the honey bee.  The honey bee stuck in a cocoon.  I trembled at the thought of stinging friend flowers who grew as weeds.            A honey bee will lose it's body after the sting, and this made me cowardly.  For hours, and days, and months, ~my heartbeat thumped faster, my baths drew longer, my poems were somber, my skies ill-lighted. All because,  I was perplexed by the people I was holding hands with. Not all. But few.  It's not that these people are guided by gloom, or built without hearts. Simply, we are not parallel.   We were born into different worlds.  All of this pondering, and mulling, made my bones ache. I'm not one for negative thinking. When I think sad thoughts,  I cannot visit my dreams. I cannot pluck petals from the sky.  Instead, I make stew. 

 I was rose blushed at dawn, with ears open, to a new melody.   It was at this moment, my clarity overcame me. And water buckets spilled from my eyes.   In the past week, I have discovered what true friendliness ought to be. I only want friend flower's who see the beauty in the pine, the scent in the candle, and the penmanship in the poem. The folksingers, the bakers, the painters, the wordsmiths, the poets, the tea-sipping, honey-dipping, souls. Those are the ones who I will keep. For those are the ones who know me best.

It's stunning how thoughts play vagabond. At once, I had goosebumps beside ill autumn shadows. Now, my thoughts are dressed in summery hours.   I blame the sun, and the folk song. If it weren't for poetry, the brightest star, or the string band, I'd never find myself complete.           Here is the melody that woke me.  "I come from a long line in history of dreamers, each one, a little more tired than the one before."

 I finish this post with a smile, a kiss, and two pictures. Picture one~ multigrain toast and homemade rasberry jam from a breakfast date. Picture two~ Newly bought cheetah printed boots. Meow.

Always, thanks for listening x

  1. My sweet Amy,
    Words cannot express how I adore you.. Mere sunsets ago, I wrote in my worn journal of weeds hidden in flowers, killing the roses I feverishly planted.. Friends pass and not all who are in our lives are meant to be permanent, something heartbreaking.. I really do believe that we leave a bit of our soul with each stranger, each friend, each person who's lives we touch.

    Let's be friends forever.


  2. i love your FUR!!! girl, you are amazing! and the bow in your hair is fantastic!

    Your oatmeal looks amazing. Cook up some for me. I love how much you appreciate simplicity and yet crave for an adventure. I've been reading your prose and poems on twitter and I can't help but wonder how someone so perfect can exist in such a corrupt world? If you ever think of publishing, which you certainly should, never let any publisher editor preacher teacher tell you to be anything different than you. Looking forward to more words and rhyme from you Amy. Wordsmith. :)

  13. I have to get this out there- I don't think I've ever said this ever on a blog. But you have absolutely perfect hair! You are so beautiful.

    I recently found your blog and am loving it. I'm a painter and fashion lover and lover of your poetry and words. How great to be able to see parts of such a creative soul via blogland.

    From a fellow creative soul...

    I can relate to cutting friends out however it's fate that's doing the cutting I believe. I'm growing older and all our lives are changing, it's hard to keep in touch or they're not the person they used to be which is a shame.

    You look so beautiful, the nude/neutral colours compliment you so well. Your hair is striking!
