a little mid-week Whimsy

hi darlings!

my morning has gotten off to a sweet & poetic start and i've been loving it so much that i wanted to share. here's a favorite poem by e.e. cummings which popped into my brain as i was sipping my morning coffee (chocolate glazed doughnut flavored deliciousness brought to you by Dunkin Donuts Bakery edition!)...

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;

wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don't cry
—the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids' flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life's not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis
