Monday Colour

In thifting the most brilliant glass bottle
In the sight of freshly folded clothes
In the smell of grated carrot, beetroot, apple, parsley and a dash of lemon, olive oil, vinegar
And eating lunch outside in the sunshine
In wearing a linen tote of flowering vine;
In lying down on mum's newly erected daybed,
'gainst the gentle quilt
and dreaming of how I'd paint my children's walls:
What colour has found you today?

  2. That image of you laying back on the floral bed sheets might be my favorite yet (you keep doing that you realize!).

    Today I can not stop watching the maple tree across the street, decked out in its summer leafy splendor, all shades of chartreuse to apple to sap, glistening in the light rain.
