A blog (a truncation of the expression weblog) is a discussion or informational site published on the web and consisting of discrete entries (“posts”) typically displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first).
So this is how wikipedia defines a Blog! I suppose if the decision had been mine I would have called it a webl (pronounced ‘weeble’)…every time I made an entry I could add a chubby little character. What can be equally charming on a BLOG entry?
But as fate would have it, no one asked me (they never do) so we are forever more stuck with blog entries and my pudgy little boiled egg shaped friends will be put away and never again will I raise the question about what a blog is.
when with you
i can retreat to some place
normally reserved for childhood,
singing out-of-key songs
and playing for a brief moment
like a child with no yesterday
to create memories
that hurt like an open wound.
i can teasingly touch you in a way that before today
would have seemed silly.
i can watch in awe as you light up a fresh smile
with the eager passion of a little girl
and the reckless abandon of a woman in love.
i cherish being able to know you at this time of your life
when i can catch you with mustard on your chin
and laughter in your heart.
you keep me always guessing…
is it warmth, daisies, or memories
which fill the menu of your innermost desires?
let me serve them to you
like kaleidoscopic helium-filled balloons,
tightly tied and held,
so they can never soar away
to a sky in want of colors.
Look carefully now,
even a patchwork tapestry of heaven
pales in comparison to the colors you bring
into my life.
