olden lumberjacks
admired it in a shop
window the spring

they eyed bosoms
and other wonders
in a city they later
concluded was just
a farm without hay.

or maybe you’ll buy it
because some hippie
chick once served you
canapes from it, then
danced you through a
summer of kisses your
heart will never forget.

Okay G-Man, I honed a 117-word ramble to those 55 for you and our fellow Flash Fiction Crusaders!!

Blessings to you all.

And enjoy whatever you’re doing, I know I am — selling on eBay, family time, driving to and from gymnastics… ballet and track, watering my flowers and preparing my songs for live shows a few months hence.

And hey — my hair totally looks like a haystack in my new farm header, don’t cha think?!! Love it!

Pretty daisies Jim bought me yesterday.

And yes, I suppose my next post could include some “after” shots of a manicure. Good idea, thanks!!

:)

But wait — a bonus photo: taken about 5 mins after I brought the daisies in from the back-deck photo shoot.

The only thing I staged below was moving the 5 books on top from the spot marked “Here” to their stunning position you see…

just a short ebay-inspired poem

singing_seeds

So, we tap on weird little things called computers

to buy stuff we’ve never seen from people we’ll most

likely not meet until at least year 1, 459, 397, 682.

 

Kinda like in the days of butter artisans when Hilda,

Dot and Mary Katherine with their silver silk bustles

a-swishing, didst order from les grands catalogs.

 

Gold hair clips often. And mirrors made from melted sand

and the dust of wind-whipped chariots of uncorseted desire.

And seeds, oh yes – seeds whose children keep on singing.

The Day She Figured Out Her Camera’s Timer

Bra Flinging, Photography | Posted by Jannie on 29 November 2011 @ 5:55 AM 52 Comments

shaking_her_maracas

 

The neighbors still rave about

how she shook her maracas.

 

How she flung peas into the trees.

Then her blue bra over the roof.

 

She still had not quite mastered

her Kodak’s indoor light settings…

 

but, by golly — Thanksgiving 2011,

the day she learned which camera

button to press, and how to run like

heck into position – sweet potatoes

everywhere did a happy fandango.

 

~~  end of amazingly deep poem for dVerse Open Link Tuesday.

Photos 1 & 2 taken with timer set for 10 seconds.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving if you celebrated.

And if you ever roast a turkey, I hope you have a helper this cute…
