Winter Trees

The wet dawn inks are doing their blue dissolve.
On their blotter of fog the trees
Seem a botanical drawing-
Memories growing, ring on ring,
A series of weddings.

Knowing neither abortions nor bitchery,
Truer than women,
They seed so effortlessly!
Tasting the winds, that are footless,
Waist-deep in history-

Full of wings, otherworldliness.
In this, they are Ledas.
O mother of leaves and sweetness
Who are these pietas?
The shadows of ringdoves chanting, but easing nothing.

- Sylvia Plath

Limit to your Love

Hello, sadly I am in my final month here in London.

I love it so much. Today is a melancholic day, the weather, my mood, this awful cough&&cold I've got.

On the agenda: reading Caryl Churchill plays and books on Feminist Theatre, cuddling up with tea, watching a few films, watercolour painting in my sketchbook, listening to feist and bon iver.

House and Home

inspiration for when i am no longer living in halls (dorms) in london.
big fluffy white beds, a chandelier, worn-in furniture, hard wood floors, stacks of books.

i carry your heart with me by E. E. Cummings
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it(anywhere i go you go, my dear;
and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)
i want no world(for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

emotional, heart wrenching, beautiful film.

Summer is fading

I am eagerly awaiting my departure to Europe.

I'm so unbelievably excited, I'm going crazy waiting.
It will be fall in London, time for sweaters, knee highs, loafers, and scarves.
I love fall dressing so much better than summer. I like to layer and wear darker hues.

I want to snuggle with a kitty.
