dreams and whims~

"I mostly lived in my dimension
Built up of fantasies and dreams,
Hardly a seeker of attention,
Yet, I preferred to act on whims."

T.K/Varenko
acting on whims~
I am..
hardly a seeker of attention...
I live in my dimension...
quietly enjoying the light~

I fantasize...and dream...
for that is what keeps my days..
from veering off course...
those twists and turns of life...

and even though..
at times I am like a moth..
securely wrapped in its cocoon...

I have a built up dreams...
soft dreams of a tarn spotted amid a mountain glacier..
a pool of silvery water..
cool and pristine~~
the snow falls..
I close my eyes..
and even though I know..
this is pure whimsy...
I prefer it this way~

p.s.:I'll have another pattern ready soon~~~

Yes, " t does patterns" sounds perfect. I can certainly see and d=feel how incredibly warm it would be to be cocooned in these mitts.
Thanks dear friend.

Theresa...it is difficult to see where one poet's words end and the other's begin...for that is indeed what you are... a poetess...a dreamer of dreams, a weaver of words and images...my day is always a better one for having read some of your beautiful thoughts x

Caroline said...

So beautiful...as always. Your blog just calms my soul. Your words inspire. xoxo

pure whimsy is the way to dream....and to live.

So much of what you've written resonates deep within me... words like a moth in a cocoon... and your words:

I fantasize...and dream...
for that is what keeps my days..
from veering off course...
those twists and turns of life...

Yes. It strikes that harp deep inside me that only the most kindred of thoughts can strike.

Frances said...

What a delight to click an electronic device and find myself in a place of beauty, grace, a place with a gentle reflective pace, a place that inspires others to find their own versions of such places.

Thank you.

Light, whimsy, and dreams ~ such a beautiful post. Makes me feel a bit dreamy and now that I've seen them I'll be dreaming of those mitts ~ so hurry up with the pattern - LOL

nicole said...

I walked alone in a wide open field this morning, every twig and leaf around me painted with the softest, softest colours: creams, browns and pale straw golds. Your words and knitting transport me back to that quiet, dreamy place.

Susan {florali} said...

Always a treat to stop by here! You are an inspiration.

I love those mitts, and such a delightful post! The mitts look so cozy! I have FMS and I'm very sensitive to the cold, especially this time of year. It's been a long bit o' time since I picked up knitting needles, but I keep seeing things like this that inspire me to take them up again (it's such a peaceful thing to do while letting the mind wander into dreams and whims.)

Amy said...
