Summer Scarf

In Kiwi-land, I used to hang with my mommy-friends at the park in boots and scarves,
in my wear-every-day Glassons cardigans,
and sip hot coffee at a cafe and watch the steam huff against cold windows.

Here it is so different.

Here it is no different.

Perhaps not at a park to frolic and cavort in the autumn leaves
and no boots, tights or thermals,

but we meet all the same,

and spill life.

And although I am still being a mole at heart,
there is a part of me that is out in the sunshine,
filling my head and hands with the splendor of brightness.

I wrap myself in the light,
like it's this season's new scarf,
cashmere cerise and kelly stripes.

and if the light was liquid
I would become a cookie and not care about anything
but being dunked in it.

Yay that you are getting out there and sharing your awesome, beautiful self with others!

If you were here, you would be layering up those thermals and chucking on a fur coat too. It's FREEZING.

Love the photos as always!x
