imagine purple peppers, fresh violin, and a basket of buttons

there really are purple peppers
and today krissy and i saw a whole basket full

the girl played fiddle
the meats smoked
and the corn was abundant

we drank tea
and unraveled our tales
sip sip
chat chat
keeping tracks of minutes
with the darkening of the brew

isn't it exciting to have a new friend
one who gets excited about fresh vegtables
sweet watermelon and ears of corn

isn't it a wonder...

today i walked another dog
and decieded i had the right dog
the right size and temperment
even though i was delighted and taken
by sweet sweet morgan the yellow lab pup

a dog in ear rang barked and owen warned them off
he is small and feisty and well reminds me a little of me
scruffy, feisty, small, engaging...i hope
morgan ran, looked very concerned and tried to hide
why is it the small ones are made so tuff?
guess cause they need to be

i got a basket of buttons too.
and a present of one of my most favorite show dvds
'the hilarious house of frightenstein'
from my little b and big J
all this buzz in just one day...
imagine purple peppers
and fresh violin

right now

right now i am uncurling my toes
and drinking hot tea, even though i have had enough caffeine to sink a battle ship
such violent metaphores,
let's try again
even though i have had enough caffeine to enliven my garden and set the mums to dancing around with wild eyes
that's better

right now i am reading the final harry potter
who isn't
right now i am younger than yesterday
and have discovered that thought can bump into you
i did earlier, right into me in the form of a friend
that likes the same colour families while we both
searched for second hand treasures

right now my tea is cooling
and my throat is healing from soreness
right now i am too lazy to get the poem i wrote in my notebook
that i was going to post

now my back is a little hunched
the smell of ratatoulie wafts up here
the floor is scattered with colourful bits of paper
the fingers are enjoying playing on the keypad
right now is good.

right now i will finish the mug of tea
that sits on the desk
and get back to reading
couch laying
and silence

for right now
see you
