i’m crocheting a little friend a stingray out of teal and white yarn i am spinning him he is tighly woven and thinly drawn
and his eyes are stitched of black yarn woven into sloppy crosses i don’t know if i’ll keep my little friend once he is complete he is something that should be given away to someone who needs his soft company more than i i could make a thousand stingrays once i understand the pattern but in giving him away he would be someone’s only stingray and i think everyone should have a soft tightly wound sea creature at least once in their lives
A misty, windy evening She glances out through the window She thinks of her life, All the way she has been through She smiles wide Her childhood surprises her She feels like it was a fantasy She remembers it's innocence, The fearless and the careless days, Her lips widen :) The day is so faint, so colorless Yet, it brings so much to her Like she is related by blood to the day, She breathes it's air She feels the wind that strikes her skin and her feelings, She remembers the place she was born She remembers her home and origin She remembers the struggle she has made And she puts up a smile onto her face. There's lightning and there's thunder All of a sudden, Raindrops pour down the earth She smells her roots with the drops She is overwhelmed She watches the raindrops Slowly and silently getting absorbed by the earth Giving the earth it's greenery, it's lost color And it's sense of life. It makes her feel like Her struggle and her tears are also accepted In the same way like the raindrops Giving her life it's meaning Transforming her into better each day Making her learn the lessons of life Making her stronger and tougher And above all, Making her smile each day with all the remembrances and reminiscences.
When I think of feeling despair for unknown reasons I know it is time for me to create something As I think of this, words of a friend come to my mind As to how she finds comfort in cooking So I go to the refrigerator and search out ingredients To make a warm healthy dish for my family it makes me feel good after washing, cutting chopping, grinding and sauteing All the while I take in the aroma of each ingredient And finally as a whole dish spooning them for taste testing and when my nose and tongue lets me know that is A OK I find that I am feeling better Enough to wash the dishes n wipe down the counter top
