Scraping Stars

Scraping Stars by Miranda Proctor


Stars scraped against the sky

piercing fragile twilight,

signaling approaching darkness


Breezes breathed life

to the pages of her notebook—

pushing her gaze down,

pulling her back.


Concrete bit the bow

of her Achilles,

the roughness a shadow

of a kiss.


Down

below she watched

charro men duck forward.

Women spun, lifting like

discarded, faded

feathers of a macaw

stirring in the breeze.


Their dresses were ravenous—

whipping from side

to side—

snapping at each other.


All eyes threw light

back to the scraping stars above.

Hey everyone!

This outfit and the location inspired an edgy twist on a memory I hold close to my heart. I would often sit on the rooftop of my home in Mexico and watch the festivals that took place in a courtyard across the street. These festivals were always so full of life that I felt enlivened just watching. Adding that dark twist juxtaposes the light-hearted mood one would usually expect in a festival.

 

As you can probably tell from my other posts, I’m a fan of skirts. I think they’re a great statement piece that can spruce up any outfit from drab to fab. So if you’re having difficulties dressing something up, maybe try the outfit with a skirt instead of the usual jean shorts.

Stay Unique.

Thank you for reading,

Miranda
