Beautiful Mess




I drew poppies

With red O.P.I.

On the white window sill

And your messy hair

As you slept

Looked like crow's wings

Spread

Across impossible

Joyful

Fairy tales.

Le sigh, lovely TIger-friend! Bogata blackberry is my favorite O.P.I. xoxo

I like to see things spread across impossible--makes it seem smaller. I almost have to go polish my nails now. (perfect 80's soundtrack as well.)

The song rocked, can't figure out what/who it reminds me of, which makes me appreciate it even more. After Googling OPI red, thought the poem beautiful. Love the playfulness and optimistic tone.

OPI Red - love those quirky names they have and it fits beautifully in your poem.

I Am Not A Waitress OPI Red or the signature OPI red? Inquiring Fashionistas need to know .. love this and the red font ...

Fireblossom said...

Love the colors Shay
Red black
No fairytale here
Well a noir one

You always throw a dead ringer

Hugs - moonless. (ok my iPad has a mind of it's own)

Claudia said...

I must google OPI red.

Marian said...

crow's wings, not crow's feet.
youthful exuberance!

Poppies, crow's wings--you've captured this moment so well. Beautiful.

arspoetica said...

a poignant picture in but few sweet words... "...like crow's wings/spread/across impossible/joyful/fairy tales." that says it all for me :)
