Sunday, October 16

yodel and blush,


Early morning rising, the Autumn leaf coddles the mountainside.
The wild yonder is caught by the fox trotting sun.   I am gladdened by the universe.  to be a child here, a companion to the stars, booklets, and trees.  Lumber catches fire below the brick frame.
The birds are wild, we are yodeling. 

I am dressing warm. drips of caramel coffee cause me to gleam.  Cinnamon buns are bubbling in the oven, but I've got an ache. This is life.  The tongue works separate from the belly.    For now, I am made alive by the bouquet of bakery scents.

 candles, flowers, spices, spritz of perfume.   Nothing can be bottled, as bewitching, or as inviting,    as the scents of the working oven.  Sometimes, I build castles in the air, mulling over heart-made meals, wishing I could share spoonfuls with the world. If I could send the scents of cinnamon, to all earth's babies, mothers, wombs, patches of pavement, horses, cowboys,  I would.    


smoke from the chimney mates with the fog. little baby clouds are born.  The moon will arrive, and palms will be cuddled by cotton sheets. The fire wood brings death to the frosty air. Wool leg warmers keep me fed.

    Dearest Amy,
    Your words are prettier than paintings. Your delicate outfits are always feminine and beautiful.
    You cause envy to the land of girls. And Joy to the land of Lads.

    Very inspiring. Keep up the shine.

  11. she blended the textures in fabric ensembles, stacked on top of each other while wearing stacks of colors. for even though she couldn't bottle scents, she sent out words that evoked images & memories of things passed or yet to come.

  38. I just started working in a coffee shop, and let me tell you, I'm dripping with a bouquet of bakery scents everyday. You'd think it would be pleasant, but I'm already sick of smelling like a caramel latte 24/7.

    On a more positive note (!), you are cute. I love your hair and I love your knits. You look warm, and I am cold right now, so it makes me feel better.
