a million flowers.

Standard

“bees do have a smell, you know,

and if they don’t they should,

for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.”

tiny houses.

Standard

if i were really, really, ridiculously wealthy,

i wouldn’t buy a mansion,

just tiny apartments in every city i love.

where hobbies, hijinks, and capers go bad = my childhood #5

Standard

while many kids of my era ate glue, paste, chalk, and crayons

i was busy with my own unusual eating habits

because we played outside for hours and hours

in the fields and open spaces of our neighborhood

most every day

i supplemented by ‘indoor diet’

with my own outdoor natural food diet

often consisting of:

pulp from a freshly fallen tree stump

rich, black, loamy soil

and baby ants.

not sure why i was drawn to each of these things

or why or how i stayed healthy

must have been all of the snow i ate in the winter months

but i’ve learned not to eat baby ants

and i’ve since moved on to chocolate, pasta, and flamin’ hot cheetos

 apparently i was one of the original clean eaters

quite by accident.

dance ’round.

Standard

found the fairy woods and troll hollow
tucked away in the middle of the trees

when your eyes are open

there is always so much to discover.

“we dance round in a ring and suppose,

but the secret sits in the middle and knows.”
