Snapshot #2: Yellow

Photo of: Yellow

A yellow candle…in the shape of a butterfly. It’s more yellow than it shows. Yellow is my favorite color, so of course it was like hitting pay dirt when I got this candle. I won’t even light it…

Behind it, I’m sure you see the “Tiffany-inspired” butterfly lamp…and a butterfly that houses an electric flame tea light candle. 🙂

Also the color that Dee calls me. She says I’m “Kali Simpson”…you know…relative to Homer anem? *rolling eyes*

Funny thing…I don’t own as much yellow clothing as one would think since it’s my favorite. I just can never find anything I like in yellow.

Foods I like that are yellow:
~Cheese/Mac-n-Cheese
~Curry
~Lemons/Lemonade
~Pineapples/Mangoes
~Omelet
~Cake

I love the sun, yellow flowers, yellow butterflies (of course), Post-its, journals, shoes, underwear (I do own a bra set in yellow cotton :), rings/stones, birds, pottery…you get it…

*in my Celie voice*  …Yellow…Y-E-L-L-O-W…yellow.

Snapshot #1 ~ Me

Photo of: ME

I may not be sized down
to a dainty frame
for dainty minds
with limited thinking…
but, I’m still frail
demure and soft
tender to the touch
unmeasured depths of heart
with much to give…
with much to learn…
with much wisdom to impart…
I may be strong,
inside AND out…
but, I feel the slights against me
I set them free
like chicks from nest
…and carry on like all is sweet
because eventually…it will be…
I suffer no emotional drought
because…
like frayed wires
wielding danger
that manically jump about…
I hold energy no one can harness
I hold great things no one can tout
my kinda love,
most can’t do without…
and don’t know it
until they’re already out…
sometimes afraid,
of my own power to be
I forget who I am
but never whose I be
yes,
it’s possible to know
to whom I belong,
and forget my way
letting the delusion
of loneliness
cause my mind to stray,
but…
still,
I come back to ME…
this woman-child of God
remembering…to be ME…every day
in the VERY way
that makes me
limitless…to the eyes of those
who dare to see
the woman with many names,
but whose mother named her…Kali
