Week 9/52: The 52 Project

20140301-175322.jpg

This is my photo for week 9 of The 52 Project. This week’s photo is one of D. D., one of my beautiful g’children loves posing for the camera. In this photo, although she is wearing her own dress, she is wearing her Mom’s high-heeled boots, and makeup that she bought with her own money at the Dollar Store. She adores the books and she even wore them in her school talent show in which she performed a crowd-pleasing rendition of “These Boots Are Made For Walking.” In this photo, her confident stance, reminds me that my little baby is in fact a beautiful, little girl with a mind and style of her own.

Poem

The spirit
likes to dress up like this:
ten fingers,
ten toes,

shoulders, and all the rest
at night
in the black branches,
in the morning

in the blue branches
of the world.
It could float, of course,
but would rather

plumb rough matter.
Airy and shapeless thing,
it needs
the metaphor of the body,

lime and appetite,
the oceanic fluids;
it needs the body’s world,
instinct

and imagination
and the dark hug of time,
sweetness
and tangibility,

to be understood,
to be more than pure light
that burns
where no one is —

so it enters us —
in the morning
shines from brute comfort
like a stitch of lightning;

and at night
lights up the deep and wondrous
drownings of the body
like a star. ~ Mary Oliver
