dark
















a little book finished a few weeks ago.

we were little tigers, hiding in the night
catching fireflies under quiet street lights.
a velvet ribbon, in the dark
fell from my hair to the meadowlark.
quick like rabbits, we ran out of sight
until we couldn't find anything but moonlight.

only one more week of school for the semester, and then next week, good news--
i'm opening my etsy shop!
books, prints, and other little things. full details next week.

Oh, your blog is so beautiful and whimsical: I adore it and I adore you. I am so inspired to attempt to make something similar; a little book filled with little stories; sentiments that should not be lost.
Please never forget what an amazing person you are, xxxxx

Hello, I'm doing a little book myself and was wondering how you managed to type directly onto your paper... did you use a typewriter? I'm having trouble putting such thick paper through my typewriter... or did you do it on the computer? Please let me know!! thanks!!!
