Retail therapy

This week,

I have been doing a little shopping.

Without a budget.

Sheer unadulterated extravagance.

Elastic, grace-filled purse strings

that found me standing in awe

in front of dazzling showroom

of priceless handcrafted pieces.

Come – let me show you a glimpse from my purchased observations:

017 I nearly fell over when these sapphire eyes appeared in my scope of vision;022

And I stared at this brilliant enamelled craft disbelievingly,

023 and surveyed the abundant scattering of this bling, becoming even more breathless


when I saw dimpled porcelain arms meeting curtsey clutching. 020

I watched a zesty Rockstar,who shakes the solitaire of this world,

to make the gold dust fly out;    028

and felt the drops of liquid platinum love erupting

to remind me of how I feel when I see these three,


and smiled in wonder at how incredible a custom design they can’t help but make on the world,

just by existing. 



This stunning one catches elegant by the fistful and flings it into facets of poetry, 


 and this one crafts strands of adventure from the bright sparkles of a joyful moment. 044

And in this shady showroom

I sat in the steamy heat,

ignoring for a time my tarnished collections of old grief

while being bedazzled by the clean, sweet richness of this,

the gift of a personal display of Life.
