NEUTRALIZED

How flatness bores these voracious eyes 
that search for brilliance and find none.
View the parlor of taupe and fawn, sterilized,
rented walls as bland as breadcrumbs.

I starve for rioting shades, hues brothel
bright. Shabby finery-  gypsy tapestries-
where gold enfolds wine or emerald spills
in those preening patterns of Chinoiserie. 

My life is prissy beige, far too repressed,
so each night mosaics arouse my dreams,
frills ruffle corners, toile redresses  
rooms; midnight blues decorate for me.  

Outed, this romantic snubbing chic style...
a Bohemian dulled in her own domicile.

    So lively, hon there are so many things to do even without hurting the walls, go by patterned drapes and put them on the wall with an expansion rod! get a great old ruby red oriental at the thruft store & frame it like a stretched canvas and just lean it against the wall- HUGS!!! I miss you! Light & Love

    Somehow, every place I've ever lived, must reflect who I am....., or I am not a happy girl !! (in my next life, I will be an interior designer!!) Love to make even our campsite homey when we are camping in the mountains...lol !!) I love my home, I love color, art, looking for the "right" piece in furniture/antique/thrift/ stores....so yes....this poem rocks for me !!! Love it!! There is a lot you can do, even in a rented space...... Wishing you a happy heart and a lovely home!!
