a coat made of petals,

 

I am sitting in my bedroom, my hair feels like it's been swallowed by the ocean, because it's wet from my bath. There's a teacup on the counter, and I need buckets to get rid of the clothes that call my floor their home.  I am craving a nap, but I know the carpets aren't like stars, they won't sparkle on their own. If only I came upon a magic bottle, one that could grant me three wishes, I would surely ask for an unblemished room,  forevermore.

 

Lately, I've been living in my imagination, causing myself to search for maps and compasses that lead me home.   Our minds are a wild thing, we're always roaming with or without hoof prints or trails. Many moons, I have sat on a rosy woven chair, and found myself in meadows, kicking streams, riding saddles, calling dogs, and chasing clouds.  But then, there are the other times,  when my imagination swallows me, and turns me into a slow slug.  Sometimes my mind plays tricks, causing me to mourn on the woven chair, for a place I've never been,  a place that exists only in my head.  


This is how my January has been.  The moon blooms, water moans, and my wild thing of a mind is off roaming,  without a buckle of reality.  My thoughts do quickly travel, and by the end of the hour, I have sat on the woven chair, dreaming of faces, and pot boiling stories that do not exist.  Have you ever let your reasoning, your soundness, or your wits hibernate like a bear cub in your head? This is me in the month of January. All I do is sit, and live inside of my head, without making much sense of it all. 

Being thought thirsty, I build a home in my head often. The only difference in this month of January, is that I have replaced wonders with worries. My common sense has migrated, and all I can do is think of the worst possibilities!  Maybe, my head isn't parallel to the sun right now, because I'm bombarded by exams, and a messy room. ^.^


 I am happy to wear my petal coat in these photographs.  A gift from my Mom. It reminds me of the sunflower garden we once grew together. :)       Now I'm going to watch a moving picture, and try to dream about sun shapes instead of brooding.

Kisses!
