I like to think Friday is a winged horse
here because I called
and ready to show me
veils of clouds from on high that part to reveal
the beautiful weekend laid out beneath me. — Annette Marie Smith
❤ Friday is here to set you free. ❤
"Photographer Diggie Vitt plays with visual improbabilities in his growing collection of surreal photography and self-portraits.
The 22-year-old creative, who hails from Jacksonville, Florida, recently wrapped up an incredible 365 photography project that further encouraged himself to translate his imagination into enchanting and, at times, eerie images." — Rebloggy(dot)com
This Friday is a dream snare
with feathers woven in her hair
willow hoops as bracelets and anklets
and beads tattooed along the sinews of her thighs
and she has promised
to let only the good things through for you
on this dreamy day of the week.
She is with you until the sun rises on Saturday
and then she will fade into the shadows on your pillow,
take the bad dreams with her
but leave the good ones for you.

Diphylleia grayi, colloquially called umbrella leaf, is an American-native plant. Its flowers possess petals that become transparent in the rain, looking like glass flowers. In my imagination I can hear their petals ringing with each raindrop, like the rims of wineglasses responding to touch.
Seeing them transform, through the process of experiencing rain, from beautiful to beautiful-on-a-fairy-tale-level, makes me reflect on the transformative power our experiences can have on us. I love rain and I like the thought that something I love (many more things than just rain of course) can wash away the everyday and and create windows — for the light to get in.

This Friday is upending all the cages
like salt and pepper shakers
setting all the things inside to flutter
out and free.
And sometimes she uses her pinky finger.
She slots it into keyholes and turns it like a key.
Friday knows that no matter how pretty or shiny,
no matter the gilding art or fee,
a cage is still a prison
so she wants to open every door
and set all the caged things free.
When she opens the door to yours
come fly away with me.
