clear sky...nice clouds ahead

gee it would be great if i knew how to make live links in the body of words....

until then please check out Camilla's blog (listed live in my links list)
many good clouds...

the other day the nicest morning words I heard Jay speak to Bea were

"Bea, your cloud in a cup is ready and on the table"
(it is a drink with frozen banana and milk)

blue skies ahead, Toronto enjoys clear spring crocus filled days ahead...Yeah!

she lives not in a bachelor
because she is a girl
she lives in a bachelorette,
i wonder if it is smaller than a bachelor

she wears heavy eye make up
think elizabeth taylor in cleopatra,
but aged
and a bob of black hair
think same actress and film

my puppy knows that
she feeds dog biscuits to the puppy downstairs
before she tells me

she wishes she had something good to give him
my puppy that is

her bachelorette is full of books
she says
especially cook books
and she says
thank god i haven't found any i want

i will have to get an apartment

my rude puppy persists
knows that she is his kind
the kind that is generous
with words and dogs
and carries milk bone dog
biscuits for cute dogs she meets
and likes to cook and read
and loves elizabeth taylor
and cleopatra
and being a girl
in a bachelorette
even though she must be 70

rude puppy persists
and tugs at her jacket
and she says
not to worry i wear nothing
that i am concerned about ruining
cause she feeds strange dogs
and i bet talks to cats in the street
that she meets
like i do...

we meet at the goodwill
looking for books we don't need

she lives in a bachelorette

pins for spring three more

pins for spring three more, originally uploaded by Kim's Suitcase.

i am all about the thaw
the coming of spring
the change of temperature
the start of that earth smell
the beginning of spring again
and shoots
and buds
and green brown grass
and rubber boots
and a light coat
and a scarf of cotton for the cool breezes
and the colour of the sky

this is the word of today:
boo' gan' vee' leah'


do not be frightened little children i come in peace bearing green thumbs and two left feet..
be not frightened small and weak, big and strong, i am not here to harm only to plant my feet in the bouganveliah
darlings one and all how many times must i commit the crime of repeating myself...

water, we need water,
the plants could hardly get out the words..
for she had told an awful false hood
here thumbs were indeed not green but shade of black..


was heard into the night...
darling it is alright
just a night mare,
those nightshades pulled tight and consumed before bed it is no wonder you are spooked
look darling do not despair i have the watering can just over there

my thumbs are not green nor black nor any unearthly hue
surely darling you can see

that the
boo gan velia

loves you...
good nite
sleep tight

the bed bugs don't

nite nite.

happy birthday to me

happy birthday to me, originally uploaded by Kim's Suitcase.

hey they say it's my birthday
well happy birthday to me...

it is such a grey day today, cold and dull the kind of day that supports travel to such sunny destinations as fiji and florida and good ol' california..

i love grey, one of my favorite non colours especially when it rains,
strange huh for such a lover of colour such as me, but colours can be loud and quiet is so nice for the eyes, lavender eye fields bathing the eyes in soft, this is good

today so far has been sweet
a cookie, and genmai tea at a cafe with a friend i popped in on, and made an escape route for, so nice

i found a doggie daycare, funny something i never knew i would ever wish to investigate. thoughts on this day.
hey happy to of been born, making use of my days to notice sometimes coment on the daily, mundane, the special stuff, the greys that sometimes go unnoticed tea gulped by instead of sipped..

my mama, a wee stature and a strong woman taught me to take my time, held up the dignity of not rushing, did things slowly, like eating and walking and speaking...born in a different time, middle aged by the time i rolled around, no frolicking but lots of fun, singing in the grocery store and making a game out of the vacuum that frightened me saying it was her doggie...which also frightened me...

loud noises i didn't like from the first car ride home from the hospital a howl is what i did when papa bear slammed the car door...

here i am an older person, perhaps depending on where you are looking at it from aged 41 not yet the age my mum had me at!

once scared of dogs, now in love with them...
never knew i wouldn't be living the hermit dream of mountain dwelling
meet a man so sweet and kind and love love loveable
and have a daughter sweeter than sweet potato pie

still can't spell nor memorize the times tables...

in the garbage today a chair,
little and broken and mine
piles of peeling paint
and a seat no longer

hi it's my birthday
happy birthday to me
