kate5kiwis: perfect rainy saturday arvo


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

perfect rainy saturday arvo

he in his new creamy black flower shirt and
me in my lacy bootblack doctors and
visiting the art gallery on the corner and
our diaryish gaze upon hairy maclary and
a quick dasheroony into the second hand
bookshop for an auto by bob geldof and
two espressos please with a hokey pokey biscuit and
the surprisingest biscotti this side of the retrocouch and
only one begun sentence of chatmeskool and
much spoken word poetry of elizabeth and mary and
articulating lengthy sentences without his new glasses and
anti-correcting verbs preceding adverbs and
the dropped book at the fortune chocolate counter and
the girl outside the hair boutique on the strand
watching me get drenched on the way to the car.

i never thought i'd match rainy and
perfect in the same sentence.

Swung by on Dee's recommendation and thought I'd pop up to say, "Refreshing stuff!" you're writing there, missy. Bless your guts.
