these pink things

Rate: 12 Flag

   Dancers in Pink

...even when
the words grace me with their presence,
they don't always choose to step
delicately into the world, pink shoes
treading softly over the white horizon.

- from invitation by Mackenzie Connellee

All by myself I am a huge camelliacamellia a plant native to Asia, with large flowers typically red or pink in color
Glowing and coming and going, flush on flush.

I think I am going up,
I think I may rise——
The beads of hot metal fly, and I love, I

Am a pure acetyleneacetylene a colorless, flammable gas that produces a high heat under pressure, used for torch welding and the cutting or purifying of metals
Virgin
Attended by roses,

By kisses, by cherubim, cherubim plural of “cherub”; high-ranking angels mentioned in the Bible, often depicted in paintings as winged babies or toddlers.
By whatever these pink things mean!
Not you, nor him

Nor him, nor him
(My selves dissolving, old whore petticoats)——
To Paradise.

- from Fever 103° by Sylvia Path

love the way you stitched all these like lovelies together. Words, photos pink things.
c & v's: lovely collection of images and verse. a most appropriate poem by ms. plath.
My favorite, happy color. *R*
That second picture nearly has a soundtrack. Pink sky celebrating over you, taking notes on your expert technique.
excellent selections, words and poems and images. they're lovely things, the dancers and their costumes, the flowers and kisses, that red that is more rose, not at bright, just pink.

(our own tiny ballerina left yesterday, she who is pink from head to polished toes, that beautiful child. i miss her.)
"...even when

My pink shoes do not always tread softly either. :)
pink is highly underrated among adults- kids get it
what catch-22 said

yes, that image is sheer joy

i, myself, am unabashedly in love with pink
Pink is a most exquisite color...~r
All the pinks. So many pinks. Never enough. Pink things. I think.
So many different directions here.
I'm happy you all visited and shared pink things with me.
Never been big on pink. Clearly, I was missing something. Thank you for the (delightful) lesson.
