Graphic cardigan and star-print tights

The stars in her eyes
Reflect the grandiose dreams of
One who has seen it all, yet
Desperately hopes for more

Dreamer, is she
Creator of worlds beyond the seen
Harbinger of the doom or success
Of fictional creatures she hoards
In the depths of her mind’s palaces

Lost and found again
Rejecting the hard cold truth for
A prison of faeries’ making
Buried deep beneath the intoxication
Of voraciously consuming words

Breathing in the scent of
Pages long since penned by
Authors whose bodies rot
And feed the needs of the earth’s fauna
And flora

Eternity swirling and glowing in the
Hopeless depths
Of her eyes.
Dreamer, is she

Bone-raw fingertips pounding
At keys too real to express
The desperation of her mind.

Um… I didn’t know what to talk about today, so I wrote you a poem inspired by these star-and-moon print tights, which you have to admit are pretty awesome. I feel like a chameleon and/or a rockstar today, because this entire outfit is not my usual vintage or retro, and… lots of black.

Happy Monday!

(P.S. If you happen to get these tights, size up. These SAY they fit 5’5-5’11 and 140-190lbs, but… if these were meant to be waist-high, they only came to barely over my rear-end. With lots of stretching and struggling.)

The Key to My Heart


I have the key to my heart around my neck
and I’ve worn red,
so you know who I am.2 4

I want to fall in love today;
the sky is grey and chilly,
but it wouldn’t matter… 

… if only you found me…6

Our love would be breathless;
A melody not unlike the stars’ dazzling song-
Full of untold wonders that can only be felt,

not heard. 7

And you are like the sand;11

Which grain are you, and
when will the sea bring you to me?12 The key to my heart hangs around my neck,
and I’ve worn red, so you know who I am. 10

Dress, thrifted.

I Want To Fall in Love Today” Original poetry by yours truly.

Sometimes, a girl just has to get dressed up in a princess dress and prance around in a field (yard). The downside to these pictures: at the end, I was covered in tree bark and moss, itchy from grass allergies, and sweating like a pig. And let me tell you, it is NOT easy to take a picture of yourself sitting in a tree with a self-timed camera.

But it was worth it.

I hope you are all having a beautiful Wednesday!

I have vlogged. I am now a nerd. Officially.

Because vlogging is what makes you super nerdy, right?

That’s what they say, anyway.

But yes, it is true. I have made a vlog which I plan to share with you in this post, but not before I inform you that I have decided mostly without your votes to replace my food/health, photoblog, and caturday blogs with letters, vlogging (maybe), and fashion. I think those three categories will fit my lifestyle and my interests much more than the previous ones.

Oh, but for those of you who did like the caturday posts, I’ll make a static page on which I’ll regularly post my favorite lolcats. Hopefully you can live without the Saturday lolcat blog. (I can.)

And with some nervousness and no further ado, a vlog:

Or a half-vlog, anyway. The other half is poem reading, to keep  myself from rambling on forever.

If it works out, I’m going to keep vlogging on Fridays. We shall see. Oh, and by the way, I wouldn’t be reading this poem or something else for every vlog. Now that I’ve broken that frontier and found it’s not as scary as I thought it would be, I’ll probably ramble on about whatever comes to mind. I’ll try to choose a subject and stick to it. But I won’t read you something every time.

So basically, I’d be actually doing a real vlog. 😉

I guess I’ll give you a little say in it:


This is my favorite shirt. It’s got birds on it. I love it.

And I also have birdie earrings. I’m all bird today.
