Seed

I swallowed a seed
Completely on accident you see
It nestled to the folds of my being
Grew within me
Ivy limbs sprinted for the Sun
I wanted to tell you not to be afraid
But my tongue is replaced
And bark hardens my veins.

69/365 Rainstorm

Lately I just haven’t had words. Especially today I wish I had something eloquent and pretty.

But since I don’t seem to have anything maybe it’s time to just do a picture a day challenge.

45-57/365 Surprise!

You guys, I ordered a new camera lens. I’ve had my eye on it for a bit and finally had enough in gift cards and stuff to make a dent in the price. I got it today, early! Of course I had to play with it.

Picture post here we go!

I have to kind of apologize for my backyard … Yard work isn’t my thing and it’s been so gross (hot and humid) that I haven’t spent the time outside on the flowers that I normally would.

Friday Fictioneers – The Fleeing of Juliet

“I will not marry him.”

Destiny did not prepare the gardener for the sight which greeted him in the morning sun. The noble daughter, sweetly sipping tea while admiring roses, and her gentleman courter writhing in dewy grass. Life did not prepare him to grab the unwitting belle and drag her to a horse.

“You have to go.”

“I will not.” Thin arms surrounded his neck.

Romeo ushered his Juliet onto the nearest mare with a promise he would not be far behind.

I wish I could say the story is only similar in name.

Alas, it ends the same.
