#poem
a child gives
handmade gifts that grow
rebel hearts
~ MG
.
I love every Winter Solstice present I got this year, but the not-so-Little Princess’s gift for my Piano Man and me (wee clay sculptures of Han and Leia, respectively) completely stole my heart.

#poem
life inks much
better when I plan
my scribblings
~ MG
.
I believe those words. When it comes to living and storytelling, planning and plotting can make things much easier. But there is poetry (and a sense of wild yumminess) to be found in writing and living while thrashing in darkness’s embrace. So, I tend to do both—if I can (and it’s fun), I plan; if life gets in the way (and adequate planning equates delusion), I ink and live like a mad woman: in chaos-kissed balance… while cackling riotously by the seat of my pants (when wearing pants is an option, that is). What about you? What’s your approach to creating and living and doing all those things that require thought?

in winter,
my amaryllis
springs for me

Also, the #bloodorange  and #mangotree couldn’t resist #photobombing their blooming sister *sigh*.

sweet madness
blooms out of art bits
wildly touched
~MG
.
I keep my blackout and stitched poetry stacked in labelled little piles in a box… Earlier today, I dropped the box. Did I mention that the labels atop my neat little piles weren’t affixed? Well, they weren’t. The falling sent things everywhere. Spring stanzas are most likely kissing Autumn lines, and your guess is as good as mine when it comes to what Winter ink could be doing to Summer feels. The accident didn’t upset me much—the cleaning of the mess might result in a better compilation (I’ve been arranging the poem bits for a future publication). Also, the re-boxing posed well for a picture and birthed the poem bit that accompanies this entry.

“She dreams on her balcony,
green flesh, her hair green,
with eyes of cold silver.
Green, how I want you green.”
~ Federico García Lorca
.
There is something extra-magical about a flower ready to spring in winter.

I kissed Imagination on the mouth,
freed my beast into storied meadows, trusted
my heart to brew fresh life out of deadly sap.

#poem
when trees bare their limbs
for winter, I wrap my bits
to avoid the sick
~ MG
.
With a new strain of flu flying around New York City, the immunocompromised can’t be too careful. Also, who would ever waste the opportunity of looking slightly creepy by wearing a facemask that puts a cat on her face… in self-defense?
.
@groovygothic, @touchofthegoddess @msmisantropia @wintermoonbooks @diandralinnemann and all my cat-worshiping friends, I thought of you when I pulled this cat-mask out of the box.

journaling
in wild ink, my soul shall be
deeply cleansed
~ MG
.
From “Balance and Chaos Must Kiss”, a poem where I dance around the sort of New Year’s Resolutions-like promises (I don’t really do resolutions), which we make totally knowing that we won’t truly keep (and as almost always, by “we” I mean “me”... you too, if you like).
