in early june.

Standard

after 3 years

my little stick

left untouched

given time and space

has grown into

a baby peony tree

 well worth the wait

for its very first bloom.

 

“in early june, the world of leaf and blade and flowers explodes, and every sunset is different.”

-john steinbeck

nuns.

Standard

you know you’ve been waiting quite a long time

at the secretary of state’s office¬†

when even a minivan load of nuns get restless.

 

 

“I sometimes think I was born to live up to my name.

how could I be anything else but what I am having been named madonna?

i would have either ended up a nun or this.”

-madonna ciccone
