whitereflection: (winchesters wide open skies)

Sunday morning,
just past 6
or 7
road dust on your shoes
creeping up your
pant legs
and you smell
like you've been rolling in a bonfire.
Some days
you think you sweat
charcoal lighter fluid.

(There's always salt on your
Some days
you think when you snap your fingers
you'll spark fire
At least then
you won't have to
carry all that with you anymore.)

Cleaning your tools of the trade
the plowshares
you both beat back into
gravel grinds
beneath your feet
as your stance shifts with the motions
(Your stance was steady
last night--
mountain wide, redwood tall,
you've grown up
solid as you
dreamed you'd be.)

Hum a song
you know he hates.
He whistles while he works
(some ancient tune you can't stand)
rebuilding guns
like Jenga puzzles
(take out the
but they don't fall down)
You're a discordant harmony.

Funny how it sounds
just fine
to you.

The world slams shut
hollow metal whomp
but everything you orbit is still
right here
He stands next to you;  you're taller
but he always plants himself as your
Shoulder pressed to shoulder
hip to hip
There's the bump of knees;
there's the kick of his boot
against yours.
You kick him back.

Sunrise spreads flames
across the sky
like wildfire
It's dawn, and you smell like

Mary, Mary

Oral Tradition

My mother is a fairy tale
a fable that never happened
She's the story no one will tell me
so I whisper her to myself in the dark
until I fall asleep.

My mother is a folklore of blood and fire
an interdiction teaching me what lurks in my shadows
so I can be a moral lesson to others
when I do wrong.

She is no happy ending
happily never after;
we her sons are brothers, grim.

A happiest of happy birthdays to one Sam Winchester ♥ Pretend that I have written a little something where he and his brother spend a peaceful day together to celebrate, and they keep on carrying on.  Many happy returns of the day, Sammy.

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] akintay and [livejournal.com profile] santacarlagypsy for tin foil hats! They're freaking adorable ^___^ Many *hugs*!

Finally watched our Secret of Kells DVD on Saturday. Really gorgeously detailed animation and a very interesting and unique art style. Am planning on rewatching sometime on my computer instead of my TV, so I can get a closer look at it.

Have been rereading Kerouac's Book of Haikus recently. Jotted down under the flap of the back cover in a poor attempt at his style:
new leaves
on swaying branches
birdfeeder pendulum swings

Guild got a first kill on Heroic Atramedes last night--took about five attempts total.  Have tried the "new" ZA and ZG (as well as the special quest chain in Stranglethorn), though I have yet to do the children's week stuff again.

[livejournal.com profile] paxlux is the Jerk to my Bitch. I'm just sayin'. ♥

Ohwow, finally tired. Finally\o/ Too much awakeness and anxiety all evening and night.

what I did last summer

I bought the iPod
because no one told me I shouldn't
because no one complained it was a waste of money
because no one said
we don't have the room to carry around stupid shit like that
I bought the adapter
because no one used the cassette player in the car
because no one picked the music but me
because no one warned me
I'd start crying in front of some kid working at a Walmart
who stared at me like I was a freak
because they didn't understand what buying an iPod and a car adapter

So recently I bought eggs from the little farmer's market I go to (Tomato Tomäto)--the vendor was Honey Creek Farms from a nearby little town in Iowa. No hormones or medications, free range, has the date the eggs are packed written on the carton. I'm unfortunately slow at getting through stuff like eggs, so though I'd bought them close to the package date of 4/1, just tried them today. But even so, holy freaking cats, freshest I've ever had in my entire life. *__* I'm never buying grocery store eggs ever, ever again.  The yolks were the deepest yellow I've seen--practically orange. It reminds me of when my friend Anj went to visit extended family in the Czech Republic, how fresh and quality the food was in their town. Those things were pricey, I won't lie, but ohman, so good. And supporting local vendors is always a plus.

Almost the time of year where the farmer's markets start up downtown and other spots around town on Saturday mornings. I really need to get in the habit of getting my butt ready early and taking Mom and myself there. There'd be even more offerings than that indoor place, and worth dealing with the hassle of crowds of people (I say this because I have to remind myself of it >_>; Eff people, heh.)

Anyway. Blah blah blah. Husband's off at Ampguard (starting doing that again suddenly a couple weeks ago after seeming to not care about it for years) so some WoW time before meeting the gals for dinner out later for Kelly's birthday. Going to visit the other fancy cupcake bakery place in town after \o/ (Jones Bros. hnnnnnnnnnnngh♥).  Because I'm a dork, I keep thinking about how freaking *good* Sam Winchester looked in last night's episode. You go, Jared!♥

Ohmygod, I just looked at the cupcake menu from that place. I WANT ONE OF EVERYTHING. O____O (And holy handgrenades, do I need to visit every day of the week somehow.)

Dealing with a cold the last few days, been extremely tired and thus have been doing close to nothing. Also it's messed with my sleep schedule, which is probably obvious. Lucky that there was nothing social scheduled this weekend.

Due to a comment on a thread at that spn poetry community, was introduced to the concept of erasure poetry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erasure_poetry). Admittedly, I've only ever had one creative writing class (high school, very basic/general), but all those high school and college AP and honors English classes...? I feel like my education was so lacking, that I'd never heard of such back then.

Anyway, decided to attempt one, using the lyrics of Kansas' "Carry On Wayward Son" (it seemed appropriate). Sort of an exploration/reflection on 5.22-6.11 Sam.


"Carry my peace, rest no more"

I rose ever higher,
but flew too high

My eyes still blind,
my mind mad,
I hear voices
when I'm dreaming
I can hear
a reason my charade is wise--
I don't know
stormy emotion

Tossed about
like a ship,
the ocean winds' voices say,
"Remember nothing
The splendor lights your heaven,
waits for you
My son, you are done
don't cry, don't cry."

Thanks for everyone putting up with all of these. I know neither my fiction or poetry is particularly good, but I really appreciate the comments folks made this month.

Oh my god, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] zuben_eschamali for pointing me at a streaming vid link, so I could at least catch the last 2/3 of the later timezone broadcast while I had the full ep file downloading.

Anyway. 6.09 )

Feeling kind of quiet today. :x Sorry for my antisocial hermit-ness.

Have been tagged for that 25-things meme by two people--I promise to do that tomorrow...or later in the week, at least. ^^;

Have managed to screw up baking break-apart cookies. Seriously.

Of course today would be the day where Dad would call (see point one). And man, can he chatter.

Decided to just write something short today, since I still want to rewatch Laputa: Castle in the Sky before I do more with that (and also since I'm tired, because being manic/giddy/wired yesterday meant not sleeping until after 4am >_>; ). Sort of inspired by the lyrics to this song:
