Spices’s charmer

Days filled with spices of creativity

are usually my secret

in endouring mind’s routine.

I feel like I’d need a recipe of these tired thoughts

to light up my dreams

and mix laughs and tears in a new-bright project.

Last night I dreamt I was cuddled by the smell of the pieces resting in my kitchen,

waiting for my new ideas, or just for an inspired touch.

I woke up in that dream to find there was a blue moon in the sky, and I sat at the window trying to remember the lines

-of an old poem of mine-

and realised it was about awakaning from childwood to womenwood.

Now that I’m wide awake I still have my childwood creativity, but

I’m not living anymore like Alice in Wonderland.

Yet still, I keep on searching the light of the dawn…

About Odile Milton

I travel through words whenever possible. Odile Milton is my signature on the web as I wanted an alter ego to indicate only my writings and works, not my personal life. Odile like the dancer in black swan, and Milton from the novel An old-fashioned girl. View all posts by Odile Milton
