This Is All Leda's Fault

Bask
in the marvelous
incongruity of May
with her rages
and jewels
joys
mixed with catastrophe
She is a rare gift
nonpareil
cream
on hemorrhaged lips
taciturn yet stylish
blue
irresistible
syncopated and swanlike
Best make tracks
or tumble headlong
maybe both

(OOAK ART doll by Lina Macijauskiene.)

I learned about the fantastic art dolls of Lithuanian artist Lina Macijauskiene from my friend Jori, who owns the one in this photograph. Isn’t this doll wonderful? I love her.

Sharing this at the Tuesday Platform in the Imaginary Garden.

P.S. I turned FIFTY on Sunday. What!?!

  1. Ha-- this may has become more hemorrhage than headlong for me but you have captured well the tipsy turvy-- thanks, Marian. K.

  2. I'm assuming the "mixed with catastrophe" refers to your milestone birthday--lol

  3. Surreal!!!
    I just don't know what to make of this. Except to bread and read again

    Much love...

  4. Fifty is a hard one to wrap the head around - best to ignore it and continue being you each day of the week.
    The doll is delightfully creepy. Your ode to May is surreal, yet accurately describes this kind of in between month.

  5. The surreal aspect of passing a milestone sounds so familiar to me... is it a milestone or millstone really?...

  6. You've summed May up pretty well. I'm kind of glad it's practically finished. What's this about a birthday? Just remember it is better to have them rather than not. ; )

  7. Creepy and weird doll - loved the poem - loved them both actually.

  8. While I suspect the month's PR firm would have reservations, this should be May's official tagline.
