And what is perfect? But a man-made concept, when it's the skies that dictate me.

We have a tiny cottage by the sea, and it serves us perfectly. The sound of waves, surrounded by trees, and a little cottage with all you need. There is just the right amount of room for a bed in each chamber, strictly for slumber, as the days are filled with the outdoors. September is […]

A simple autumn cottage bedroom

Simple cooking, for the working kitchen. This recipe made me chuckle this morning, because it was from an Instagram video, using a viral song that is making waves because of it’s heartfelt innocence of loving corn. I was inspired by this video and decided to build on top of the existing recipe, to put my […]

Rosemary Pumpkin Vegetable Soup

On rainy days, the townsfolk grow quiet, the gardens are thankful and candles glow in dimly-lit houses. The rain allows for calm, as an excuse for an otherwise constant hustle and bustle in households. There is a faint tapping on windows to remind my heart to follow its rhythm, while drops tickle pedals to show […]

settling in rainy days

What a perfectly wonderful weekend of doing nothing. Sometimes I find settling into doing nothing, just as pleasant as an adventure packed day. Ryan and I spent the weekend in the woods by the sea, with fur kids in tow. My goal was to keep things simple this weekend, so for food I went shopping […]

Last days of summer – a slow living diary

I am guided to decorate my home by the stories that a scratched-up wood desk can share with me. Although it is attempted to create decorative pieces that have been distressed, I can always tell that they are new, made to look old. That is desirable in its own way, but for me I cannot […]

Imperfect Home Beauty

In a world of commentary, why would I choose to do this? Because It’s about the book, not the typo. Today is the day that I received the first print copy of my debut poetry book. It just arrived in the mail and I was nervously excited. I opened the cardboard box to reveal the […]

It’s about the book, not the typo

I’ve been published in two co-authored books, I’ve written hundreds and hundreds of freelance copy, content, blogs (you name it)! And in the background, there I was, just introspectively jotting down things that made me smile. Things that flowed through my hands. Things I didn’t have to think about. Just for me. I wrote for […]

Kiki Carr: Debut Poetry Book

Flow through the hazeFlow through with easeThe sun risesAnd so, the moonThe fog will fallBecoming dewTo feed faunaBelow.

The Fog will Fall//

Sometimes,For writer’s sakeI am not what I mean.When you awakeAnd I am meWill you and I forsake?

Writer’s Sake//

For new and old, or once came and gonea place that knows no boundaries.Although a floating land they saygrounded in its stories. Will you let your footprints taintof what has always been?And where do you stand when Winter comesthe air of solitude. Its people will stay and playhonouring its lasting span.Do you thank the snapshot […]

Something in the air//

And me, my ownMy soul’s embraceTo walk through fireAt my own paceTo see the birthUpon my faceWould help me standIn time and place.

Stand in Place//

I speak in riddlesFor folklore’s taleOf riches beyondOur human scaleBut what we knowIs just a dropAs I swim in its pale.

Conscious Swimming//

Why does the eath turnAnd bees sting?Why do the seas sighAnd humans sing? There is no reason in perfectionor imperfection in its reason. We come and goAmongst the tidesAs stories toldWe are what lies.

Reasoning//

There are more uncertainties than answers right now, but know that you aren’t alone in it. When we focus our attention on our connectedness rather than our lack, we can set a path for ourselves. It’s not easy, but it’s a choice that is in our control. Our certainty in uncertain times can rest in […]
