we have lunch in unusual places

in the apple grove
or the high school wood shop,

by the sea on a white painted table
or at the library - very quietly of course

tea party on the beach

imagine us, your best friends,
scattered along the coast

dressed is soft yellows, baby blues
and ballet-slipper pink dresses

hands clasping antique cups
overflowing with sweet tea

milk pitchers shaped like cows
and fancy silver spoons

tucked into the white crystals
of an over sized sugar bowl

scattered, like we are, across a table
as if it too were an ocean

fishing for boys in loose bow ties
and snacking on petit fours

with curly haired irish lads
and dames in elegant dresses

chain singer

we woke up in the milder woods
of a new england province

pink roses in full bloom
tucked in colorful glass bottles

nestled between the leaves
all around our blankets and sheets

lost in a familiar neighborhood
we bought 10 cent ice creams

and put circles of pebbles
in people's driveways


six winged angels in fuax leather jackets
and foreign textbook boots
spread the chaos of an uncertain afterlife
to the men and women of battle fields
and the fortress walls of Cahokia Fort

when angels are found sleeping like children
dreaming of kitten paws and fresh figs
on the beaches and river banks
in homemade four-point beds
with irish lace linens and downy pillows

should you disrupt them let it be
with fresh milk in glass bottles
a song and a strong british blend
in fine white china tea cups on saucers
hand painted with flowers and seasonal berries

locked not to the task at hand
because angels of all creatures
are playful and hungry
don't rush them towards terror
or your next cuppa will be cold

i know i'm behind on photos, but i have been using the camera a lot... just not updating my readership. also, it's not even appropriate to mention the word poetry here these days, is it? mou'sif.

i have been playing a lot on polyvore and tumblr though, if you want to check out what i've been up to elsewhere on the interwebs.

i've also been discovering. well, i did a single discovery. i discovered this man (and i love him):

Day 87

Snow day Part III

michelle got this lemongrass herbal tea during her trip in the philipines. it's horribly delightful and a brilliant way to start off a snow day.

Day 86

Snow Day Part II

last night I stopped by homegoods and picked out these floral tea cups for liz and i to have tea. they make me happy. ^________^

Day 85


because we often lose power when we get big storms and we have a well and pump water system, i like to fill a big bucket with water to flush the toilet.

rowdy and jack decided to help me make sure the bucket wasn't too full.

pictures forthcoming

i went to homegoods today on michelle's recommendation and found two lovely, floral tea cups with saucers. now liz and i can enjoy our tea in dainty fashion. ^_^

kisses like cake

in the heart of the jungle
her kisses tasted like candy

pink and sweet and wrapped
in a fine layer of resolve

peeled away like a curtain
to a window overlooking the moon

and from crater to crater
i followed her for more

Day 84

this picture was not taken today. it was taken in december, on our trip to visit dina (pictured) in new york city.

even though it's not in keeping with the picture-a-day, she is beautiful.
