THANKFUL and THOROUGHLY POETIC THURSDAY: State Road 23

The image chosen for today by TWO SPOILED CATS for Sam's Poetry Corner was a delightful one.  Who does not like finding produce stands while on a country drive?  Though today, we can often enjoy these garden grown treasures right in our own neighborhoods at nearby Farmer's Markets.

For me, personally, the image brought back childhood memories: rural, mid west. Bicycles on dirt roads, tree climbing.  Hide and seek in corn fields.  Swatting skeeters, hot, no air conditioning.  The TV going snowy at 11 pm and the National Anthem signing it off. Mom, Dad, brother, the lazy days of summer, growing up days ~ and my Dad's bountiful gardens!  Rich with summer delights. 

My poem reflects family memories and growing up days, it is dedicated to Dad ... and is based on our real life back then, hope you enjoy it.  Remember also that today is Earth Day, let us do all we can to protect and preserve the richness, the beauty and the bounty that Mother Earth gives to us.






Thankful for my Dad.

A FEW WORDS ON WEDNESDAY

Mom, the coverlet is folded and put away.  Pretty throw pillows set aside for the night.
It's time to go to bed!

Sorry, little June, I'm still reading a very good book!  I'm not ready for bed.

Well, I am ready.  I am going to bed.  With, or without.



Nite, nite.  Sleep tight.

HAPPY TUESDAY


 Why are you hiding under the table?  Are you not happy today?
Actually you should know you're not hiding if I can see you.  And I do see you!
Did you do something you shouldn't have done?  You do look a little bit on the down low.
Listen, it's Happy Tuesday.  So I think you can come out now and Be Happy.  OK?  OK!

HAPPY TUESDAY

SUNDAY SELFIE


 June, you look deep in thought ~ 
what's on your mind little one?

Oh, just pondering that little fly on the window pane.
Should I?  Or shouldn't I?  You know, get up.  Go for it.
But I am so very comfy here on this easy Sunday.
I never can catch a fly anyway.  Never have, never will.
Hope all my friends have a comfy, easy Sunday too.
