show your heart

i was tagged by the awesome nicola of inside the cabinet of wonder (thanks nicola!) to do the 'show your heart tag'...with as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in: 1 picture, 1 poem, 1 song or piece of music, 1 phrase or quote, 1 piece of clothing, 1 place and (just for fun) 1 disney princess. i think this is going to be a hard one, but i will try!

1 picture: i know it's tiny (i took it on my old cell) but i thought it was exhilarating.
1 poem:
this is a poem that i read a long time ago in elementary school. i can't seem to find the author to it. does anyone know who wrote it? but i loved it ever since. it is quite quirky:]
Saturday night
Dad washed, I dried
the supper dishes
while Mom armed herself
for Early Bird bingo at seven
in the church basement:
her lucky piece
(a smooth quarter she’d won the first time out),
seat cushion,
and a White Owls box of pink plastic markers.
Dad read the paper
watched TV with me
until Mom returned,
announcing her triumph with a door slam
and a shout“I was hot!”
Flinging her hat,
twirling out of her jacket,
she pulled dollar bills
from her pockets
before setting them free
to flutter like fat spring snow.
“Ninety-two dollars!” she squealed
as Dad hugged her off the floor.
“Ninety-two dollars!”
In bed I listened to
mumbled voices
planning to spend the money-on groceries
school clothes
A leaky radiator-
and wished she’d buy
a shiny red dress
long white gloves
and clickety-click high heels.
1 song: it's in between dawn by jean-yves thibaudet & clair de lune by debussy.
1 phrase or quote: "the shadow proves the sunshine" - jon foreman.
1 piece of clothing: a cardigan.
1 place: a meadow in the woods.
1 disney princess: belle of beauty & the beast.
brinja: thanks:] little maximus is happy. he is always happy when i come into the room where he lives in his little house. how are your fishies?
inside the cabinet of wonder: !! just email me:] & thanks again for the tag!
