Collection: The Megan

Wednesday, April 6, 2011

--A Collection by Kristina J.--

It's the Megan...
definable only in the sense that she's a chameleon,
never going for the obvious cliches.

There's no one else quite like her,
with such a unique way of expressing herself.
You don't define her--you don't try to put her in a box.
She twists and folds and shares a different side of herself
with you depending on the circumstances.

She maintains the classic silhouettes of a
circle skirt and jewel-neck blouse, but she's different--
coloring outside the lines with trimmed-out
tuxedo ruffles and sunburst pleating.

She's smart and sharp and has more than a vague idea
of what she wants to accomplish in life.
She knows a vague idea is like a snapshot that's out of focus.
She possesses a quiet confidence beyond her years, and focuses
her mental picture until it's crisp and filled with details.

She's the girl most likely to shoot the moon--
go for broke--on your friendship.
When you think she's given everything there is to give of herself,
she wraps her arms around you and
steals your heart with the faith she's got in you.

She's versatile...extraordinary--a starling.
She's elegance and magic and mystery.
She'll never move on from you...she's present...
even when hundreds of miles away.

The Megan...
she embraces the details that make her different and special,
and in doing so, she gives the world a wonderful gift.
