Day 329: Edge by Missy


i'll be honest...
i thought it was provocative ordering
a salad with an omelette for breakfast...
but not eating the croutons and scattering them on the table?!
down right cutting edge!

Day 326: Skew by Missy


there was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile,
he found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
he bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.
& they all lived together in a little crooked house...

(seriously. this is how it's been for a while... it makes me smile everytime...)

Day 324: Redo by Missy


today's theme is redo... so while i do like my photo for introduction,
i decided to redo it, and reintroduce myself...
my name is melissa, but most call me missy... i am 35 years young... i received the most fab shoes today via ups... i also got a cheap bike today... i'm getting my haircut tomorrow and considered having it shaved on one side... i sweat a lot- even along my brow... i now have two tattoos- a bird behind my ear that sings to me and a butterfly that flutters my chest... my favorite word is vibrancy... i spent most of the day in tears due to a heartache- i felt like i couldn't breathe... i am the parent of a middle-schooler... i'm worried about bono... i have plans to go to a nude beach this weekend... if i could live anywhere, it would be in nyc... i finally understand focal points and depth of field... i think too much... i need a job... i love kissing... i obsess over details... my favorite holiday is the 4th of july- i find fireworks romantic... i believe in honesty... in moving forward... in love... and in all things real & true...

Day 318: Motto by Missy


there are lots of things i end up repeating over and over...
catch phrases... mantras, of sorts... aphorisms, one might even say...
"there isn't enough time"or "i'm wasting time",
"i don't want to die before...",
"there's always a way", "i gotta get outta here"........
but all these can be summed up in what i consider my 'motto'...
there's no time to waste...

Day 317: Hidden by Missy


hidden place

through the warmthest cord of care
your love was sent to me
i'm not sure what to do with it
or where to put it

i'm so close to tear
and so close to
simply calling you up
and simply suggesting

we go to that hidden place .

now, i have been slightly shy
but i can smell a pinch of hope
to almost have allowed once fingers
to stroke
the fingers i was given to touch with
but careful careful

there lies my
passion hidden
there lies my
i'll hide it under a blanket
lull it to sleep

i'll keep it in a hidden place .

the beautifullest
still strong
dark and divine
and the littleness of his movements
hides himself

he invents a charm
that makes him invisible
hides in the hair

can i hide there too?
hide in the hair of him
seek solace
s a n c t u a r y

in that hidden place

Day 310: Thing by Missy


and so my obsession with things with wings continues...

the moths
by mary oliver

There’s a kind of white moth, I don’t know
what kind, that glimmers
by mid-May
in the forest, just
as the pink mocassin flowers
are rising.
If you notice anything,
it leads you to notice
and more.
And anyway
I was so full of energy.
I was always running around, looking
at this and that.
If I stopped
the pain
was unbearable.
If I stopped and thought, maybe
the world
can’t be saved,
the pain
was unbearable.
Finally, I noticed enough.
All around me in the forest
the white moths floated.
How long do they live, fluttering
in and out of the shadows?
You aren’t much, I said
one day to my reflection
in a green pond,
and grinned.
The wings of the moths catch the sunlight
and burn
so brightly.
At night, sometimes,
they slip between the pink lobes
of the moccasin flowers and lie there until dawn,
in those dark halls of honey.

Day 309: Thirst by Missy


no one would pose with a mouthfulla sand for me...
i've been known to pound some gatorades...

Day 308: Won by Missy


someone won. someone did not.
the same one that won, usually wins.
the one who did not win, usually does not win.
i don't feel like I'VE won, when i see them playing
the gamecube rather than the wii........

Day 305: Creature by Missy


“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.”

Day 304: Glinting by Missy


What the Carpenter Said

THE moon's a cottage with a door.
Some folks can see it plain.
Look, you may catch a glint of light,
A sparkle through the pane,
Showing the place is brighter still
Within, though bright without.
There, at a cozy open fire
Strange babes are grouped about.
The children of the wind and tide--
The urchins of the sky,
Drying their wings from storms and things
So they again can fly.
