blizzard warning

play me:
i have an apointment with my tattoo artist today but since its so damn cold and the blizzard is coming i will skip it to another day soon because the clouds are so heavy white and grey and full of snow..because snow is drifting allready in a thin sharp rain of flakes along my windows...i dont wanna do anything but roll myself up in my dark purple bed sheets...wanna listen to dinah washington...oh tell me..is you is or is you aint my baby???...clouds are so heavy...i feel like i wanna close my eyes and wake up in my grandmothers favourite chase.. all comfy and save from the coming snow storm..on the radio they say it might be a storm of a century...again..is you is or is you aint? tell me...
so...outside..my trees and bushes have been kissed and crystalised by the snow white queen..even the iron of the pavillion aches under her frostiness..



but inside...my strange flowers..my needs and desires..keep on blooming...i try to ignore the snow..i have my own spring..inside .


but on to other things...just the other day i learned that the wonderful alana has "awarded" me..http://afterthepole.blogspot.com/2010/01/ive-been-noveling-lately-and-suck-at.html
so..i think in generall its like you recive such thing..and like with everything good..you pass it on...so i do this too...there are many bloggers who inspire me but a lot of them dont blog much lately or are having a hiatus...also i decided to pass this blog award on to wonderful writers outside of the smut writing blog land crew i usually move along with..we smut writers tend to be a small incestous group..and we need some fresh blood...




and

i hate to "choose" people ...when your name is on that list it means your writing moves me..touches me..inspires me...if your name is not on that list it DONT means anything at all..i still love you as a friend..love to read your words and like your style..but above these 5 bloggers do inspire and touch me a lot in this minute...

..and forgive me to "illustrate" this post with a song you might dont understand by ear..but maybe by heart...let me give you a few lyrics from it so you can understand why i choose it...
because our hearts mainly are blind
who of us is like a child?
open to everything like the wind
who brings the rain to the ocean
the rain, so free and yet willed

give me a suitcase for my heart
because it is worth so much more
if you take it with you
from dawn to dusk
and then bring it back to me...whole and unharmed

Ms. Moon said...

Danielle- Oh sweet man. "Is you or is you ain't my baby?" Do you know how much it touches a woman's heart to think that a man listens to Dinah Washington for comfort? Every post you do seems to be more beautiful than the last. Your words are flying and landing in hearts. Do you know that?
Thank-you for that honor. You have no idea how much that means to me.
Stay warm and dream.

Allegra Smith said...

Oh dear, so we have more in common than Brazil. Later I will post a photo of one of our orchids which is the only one in bloom right now. I too love the "strange" ones. And thank you for the honor.

You and the family stay cozy in that storm!

Janine Ashbless said...

Oh Danielle - what a sweetie! Thank you! It makes me blush to hear you say that my "writing moves me..touches me..inspires me..." when those words come from a poet like yourself. Your blog is consistently beautiful and moving in both words and pictures, so thank you for blogging too.

Jeremy Edwards said...

I'm so honored and touched, Danielle! Thank you!!

In a more logical world, your warm heart would heat all of Europe.

And I love the heart-in-suitcase imagery in those lyrics.

As for "Is you is or is you ain't my baby?"—that line always makes me think of an old movie I know, in which someone answers the phone by quoting that line, thinking a certain person is calling. Of course, since it's a "screwball comedy," it's the wrong person on the other end of the phone. : )

Jo said...

You show Dirk that warm heart comment, D.

Allegra Smith said...

I just remembered that in a very old movie there was a little rhyme that went something like this:

Tell me quick before I faint:
is you mine or is you ain't?

and the answer was:

Tell me quick before I faint:
am I yours or am I ain't?

There is an orchid for you on my blog. A gift for a gift.

Danielle said...

@ jeremy

ha..thats exactly what i meant..you always have to tell something...there is always hidding something in your hat...a little wonder in your fedora..:-)

Danielle said...

@ allegra

aww..i so like that rhyme allready...i m fond of such little dancing words...:-)

and thank you for the flowers...:-)
