Vietnamese, and wandering,


Sunday is here. Morning has broken, the birds rise like milkweed into the light.  I've had a fancy filled week. Brimmed by rosy-cheeked feelings, and fine feathered shouts.    
Each day, a smile hugged my nuzzle. 

On Wednesday, this frolicsome body, found itself attached to the downtown city, snacking on Vietnamese, and catching laughter fits with one lively peach(named Adelaide).    The entire afternoon was spent borrowing stories,  expressing inner desires, and undressing outer ramblings.  

Do not ask me for a Vietnamese date, unless you want me to flip coins over soup or rice noodle. Do not ask me for a Vietnamese date, if you expect lady like sipping, and patient biting.  Vietnamese food turns me into an animal. I become the wild woof that hunts at the wood's peak.    My lesser known Sloppy head, begs to chew Vietnamese wildly, and sinfully.  The flavor, the tongue, the lip, and the color, it's too much to keep me tame.

We spent the first hour.. hemming and hawing over food choices..     Vietnamese Sub? Vietnamese Soup? The rice noodle?   ...After it all, we wished our throats were swallowing Viet subs instead of poorly composed cilantro rolls.... (oh cilantro, why are you so strong.)
Meet Adelaide.   The truest tenor, the ripest honeydew melon, the brightest beam in the star cluster, the sweetest Vietnamese date. Spending an hour with Adelaide is parallel to spending a day studying the sun, fastening buttons, or taking bites out of apples.    She dresses like a flower, laughs like a child, and brings all kinds of merriment.

The hot, benumbing, shower head is calling to tidy my hair, and awaken me for Sunday. The sun is undressing the seeds, and lifting the spirits of our heads.  The day brings a local magazine photo shoot. I'm styling 5 outfits, and getting photographs taken.     Nervous as a new born,  I'm finger crossing for well wishes, and clean air.    Talk soon precious peaches.

Kisses !!

    Amy. Sweetness. Good Grace.
    I fell for your Charms when I began reading your Micro Poems. You Remind me of the English Poets we study in Literature to become great poets ourselves. I haven't seen Someone with your Way of words And Style of Poem. If you don't continue to write Poetry and Paint Novels with your Work then You will be doing a Great disservice to the world. Keep being The poet that you are. Really enjoy Reading through your posts.

    (Might I add, your Quite Fashionable and Very Pretty. Striking actually..)
