crapola ....

let’s make way to the lighthouse
where the waves will lap up your
tea-cup cheeks and saucer lips

mother .....

sigh ....

watch out my child-sized friend of many faces
with as many places up your sleeve
be sure to watch out for the mermaids won‘t you?

they’re not so legendary ....
                                          yanno?

scatter-heart ....

don’t let the darkness break you
signal that trumpet over the horizon
it’s only your ghost passing the
breath of sea

and you have seen ....
many a jilted bride in soaked cloth haven’t you?
(don’t deny it)
no point in rocking your head
bobbing it like a  mocker seahorse
in your aquarium world
                    you little sea-urchin you

c’mon  ....?

count the steps  .... one, two, three, four
the first to the top is a rotten  ....


yup

and I’m a priceless baboon.

I've lost the very best of me"

That's a powerful, enchanting, playful way to the lighthouse ...
and now I know what a "baboon" is ...
Smiling.
Love, Margherita

You've got so much style, Maree~
I felt an innocence in your words
as well as some deeply rooted emotions.

Happy New Year, sweetie~

(smiles) Yay! I'm so happy I uncovered this gem of yours, sweet friend, I was in Missouri during the New Years holiday and missed it! (big angel hugs) What a trip, sweet friend, the imagery is powerful, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Maree, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Maree, the more complex and thought provoking the better.  I love writing as the mood hits, but it never comes out as good as this...

To the library with this series!
