little ponies.

Standard

with the return of the beautiful weather

it seemed like a good time

to also return to shorter pants and smooth legs 

in my enthusiastic state

no need for directions

no need for glasses

i quickly replaced the blade cartridge in my razor

tried it, and nothing. 

looked more closely and realized 

i had put it on upside down

so rather than

fixing it and turning it the right way

my go-to move

was to go in the opposite direction

shaving from ankle to knee

with great results

until

i noticed some blood

apparently this technique

is not quite as efficient and gentle

as i had imagined

then there was even more blood

and more

luckily

i had my little pony bandaids at the ready

patched up all my places that needed patching

 set off for my walk

thanks, ponies 

luckily i am not a barber.

dung.

Standard

all i see is a heart

and i know 

that i have crossed paths

with a sweet and amazing

canine artist.

 

 

“to fashion stars out of dog dung,

that is the great work.

to take a negative experience and,

by comparing it to something worse,

make it feel good, is a great skill. “

falling all around.

Standard

 beautiful walk in the rain today

discovering

a newly made waterfall

spring flowers in the mud

brilliant green moss

growing on the trees

in the quiet woods.

 

 

“the rain is falling all around,

it falls on field and tree,

Ii rains on the umbrellas here,

and on the ships at sea.”

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.”
