of square tables in gardens round
of shattered stars that dare not cry
washing teased by yesterday rain
and breaking sunlight by
and i will draw you of yourself
and paint this ceiling blue
i will cast this echo back
and i --
i will love you"
~Count Me the Stars
by Kylie Johnson
I love the little quote above from Kylie Johnson's book Count Me the Stars. My sister picked it up at a trip to Anthropologie and I read it in an hour. The poetry is so beautiful and interesting. Yesterday was sunny and I spent the afternoon in the garden. I decided to try taking some of the photos that I had made notes about in my little 'blogging ideas' notebook (yes I have a notebook - several notebooks in fact where I record any number of useful and useless things on a regular basis *smile*). I wanted to create some photos that fit with this beautiful piece of poetry and I had a really fun time trying. I hope you like what I came up with...
