Today’s prompt from Kat McNally’s August Moon challenge is: What do I love?
Fortune cookies and refrigerator poetry. Hats with flowers. Weep lines of trees. Maps written in the lines of your hand. Crows coming by to say hello. The way my husband always kisses me before he goes out. How red shoes make me feel ready for a wonderful adventure. Pink depression glass. Watermelon tourmaline. Bumble bees and elephants, pink river dolphins and sweet-tempered donkeys. Origami hearts and milagro body parts. Falling stars and climbing roses. Bubble tea and bubble baths. Finding feathers and losing worries. Secret compartments and puzzle boxes, skeleton keys and pneumatic tubes. The winged shoes of Hermes. Electric cello music. Frankincense and rose attar. Bookbinding and loose clothing. Eyelash kisses and strong hugs. Sunflowers and goldfinches. The night sky and mama moon. Dia de los Muertos and my birthday month. Pink velvet chairs and beeswax. Angels and devil’s food cake. Books and art, beads and symbols. Holey stones and dream journals. My secret decoder badge and my cast iron Humpty Dumpty bank. Glitter-filled toothbrushes and artisan soaps. Mystery marathons, polka dots, and toe rings. Poetry and bathtubs. Peonies. Love letters. Oatmeal raisin bars and Blitz Kuchen. My sweet kitties and all my beloved friends and family. Apothecary chests. Yosemite and Big Sur. Pot stickers and moonstones. Artist smocks and flower essences. Vintage Flash Gordon shows. Costumes. Kindness, beauty, intelligence and laughter. Eygptology, aurora borealis, the language of light, and Herkimer diamonds. My beautiful divinely-guided business and the work I do. The Omo people of Ethiopia. Knowing we all here on this planet just walking each other home. Most of all, I love, love, love my life!
What about you? What do you love? Do tell – you know I love to hear.
