for contemplation and laughter
for wearing hats and silly scarves
for comfort and camaraderie
for new friends and fabulous food.
today I can be quiet,
today I can embrace my inner muse
today I shout to the rafters and giggle out loud
this is a good joke, a day of acceptance.
this is a day
of embracing my me-ness,
today is a day for embracing.
today is blue pitchers and salt + pepper shakers
today is Dopey and velvet hats and red boots.
Today is about Levis and white shirts, big hair + great earrings
today is about no pantyhose –
Today I embrace vibrantly bohemian
(sometimes I write poetry.)
