But not really

Happy spring … with bells on!
Actually it’s that fluffy frozen vapor we’ve all gotten to know so well, but I’ve been banned  from saying or writing the word. You laugh, but scary things happen when winter pays too much attention.
And so now it is march. I realize I haven’t posted in more than a month, but I might have spent that time accidently predicting and causing winter storm mayhem while being sick. It was not as awesome as it sounds. But if you don’t believe me, you can try on my suuperpower for a day.
Anyway, happy thawing everyone! Hope you all survived the winter. Read more…

Jar

My hand is burning from finally opening the pickle jar, half my bed clothes are going for their fourth dryer spin and I haven’t slept in almost three days.
Well truthfully, I just haven’t been sleeping at night. I get some sleep when my alarm goes off for me to wake up, but still. Actually I rather like the new year so far.

Yesterday was January 8, (at least it was where I am). I’m kind of obsessed with it. It isn’t my birthday or anything significant to me as far as I know, I just really like the look of it in my mind. I’ve always liked January. I have–as you’ll probably remember if you’ve been here before–a strange love for winter, and January is like fresh clean snow. Eight is usually a bright color, and tends to stand out wherever it lands. It does look better in the blue months though.
We’ve had real snow here, but I probably should be careful what I say about that. It’s been cold here too; just like real winter.

Hello, winter, It’s been a while.

To summer

Lying on the beach.
The sand and shells beneath me.
Sun kisses my face.

Roar of the ocean.
The salty brine fills the air.
Oh, freezing water!

A pearly white stone,
The roundest one I have found,
Glitters like a gem.

Table salt sea salt.
Sand retreats beneath my toes.
Clenzing splash of waves.

Mirror of water.
Sudden flight of flightless things.
Many dancing suns.
