rustic butter dish, by justwork

"come down, stay there, move on.
i want you, i don't, keep all.
there is no song to your singing.
i am hit deep, you drive far,
o mooney yellow half moon,
steady, steady; or will you tip over?
or will the wind and the streeling
thin sheets only pass and move on
and leave you alone and lovely?
i want you, i don't, come down,
stay there, move on.
money is nothing now, even if i had it."

~ from 'half moon in a high wind', by carl sandburg

{ julie feeney, in new york, jan 2011 ; film by myles o'reilly }

and my own new york free verse... 

'discordant symphony'

brooklyn-bound bells resonate, a chime chime, through the hollow place.
and walls upon walls, upon hollow ground, reaching for the open

doors departing to time not marked by hurried footsteps or moonrise sonatas 
floating in and out.  
in and out.  
up and through the grate and trapped between the layers. 
sounds ricocheted, distorted and thinned in ghostly echo for an unnoticed eternity. 
until it stops. 
one string instrument amongst the symphony of discordant sound stops. 
and you notice

a little missing piece amongst the cacophony of brilliance. 
of art and music. poetry and architecture, 
perpetually overlooked in the push of sidewalks' pulling of eyes. 
muted in movements' waves through a place overfilled with brilliance

allied by stone upon stone
of perfect, finite disconnect 
of the constant bustle, ringing, stimulus 
that swishes the quiet retreat of a protected mind in sweeping frenzy. 
around and around. 
over and under. listening for the bells' signaling of an opening. 
to slip a hand through the crowded doors, 

with hungry song and hurried pleas and click click on the stairs, 
snapping the quiet in scattered tumble to the platform. 
an exhalation poured out on a wave of unnerving tremor (of love? or grief? melancholic ecstacy).
the new york moment

intensified by the sheer magnitude of confined islands, 
where likes become love. and the dislike, hate. 
always passionate strength. 
reflection in the hazy dripping heat of august blacktop, burning in
concrete upon concrete. 
or in the forgetting of skin's feeling by the hand of february's bitter winds, 
fueled by the maze-like eternal search for the sea

we travel together. 
intimate meals with strangers over tables shared. 
and sunday beds of quilts on grass. 
waking next to the unnamed under my tree. your tree. 
with a buried city beneath. 
the tombstone tree, marking the graveyard of a people's history. 

a symbiotic masterpiece of kinetic movement. 
breaths in and out. heart beating up and down. 
muscles signaled by one brain, constructed from the millions. 
my piece slips away.
and i notice.


happy thursday

sessun, steven alan, zinke...

well, i tend to be more of a 'go to the thrift store and sneeze my way through the jumbled racks of dusty clothes until i find something magical for only $2' kind of girl... but that doesn't mean i can't drool over the inspiring designs from the likes of sessun, steven alan, and zinke, right?!

speaking of, i finally gave in to the endless void of eyecandy that is pinterest... 200 pins already?? what has happened to me...

spot on... timeless, vintage-inspired, simplicity, with just the right pop of rich color... dresses to slip on in the heat of summer.  a few pretty accessories. done.

another vintage-inspired collection.  adorably sweet.  pretty and feminine.  casual with personality. ready for a bicycle ride, with a picnic in the basket

and zinke always does lingerie and swimwear right... the perfect starting point to make you feel confident and strong.  romantic and self assured. ready to layer with lightweight summer ware. pieces that deserve to peak through

happy wednesday

saturday shopping list, february 18th...

polka dots skirt... cotton chiffon airy skirt, by jenfashion

"oh, long, long
the snow has possessed the mountains.

the deer have come down and the big-horn,
they have followed the sun to the south
to feed on the mesquite pods and the bunch grass.
loud are the thunder drums in the tents of the mountains.
oh, long, long
have we eaten chia seeds
and dried deer's flesh of the summer killing.
we are tired of our huts
and the smoky smell of our clothing.

we are sick with the desire for the sun
and the grass on the mountain."

~  paiute late winter song
