Humor

When things don’t go your way
and there’s nothing left to say
turn that frown, upside down

When life gives you the shaft
don’t be gloomy, have a laugh
and laugh away those blues today

Speculation and wild rumor
take it with a sense of humor
In the war on reality
it’s the only weapon we have

Always look on the bright side of life ~ Eric Idle

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP

Snow Kisses

Snow flies like tiny fairies
dancing in the winter air
shivering in the bright sun
as snowflakes tickle my lashes
little fairy kisses
melting on my tongue

Monday Window – Looking Through

1.6.20 Wellington
Stained glass window preserved at the Wellington Museum – Wellington, NZ

Ludwig is hosting the first Monday Window challenge for 2020, come on over and see some fabulous windows. I took this shot last winter while on holiday in Wellington, NZ. It always makes me feel warm to look at it when the weather here is cold and windy.

Look Through the Window

I watch the light shine through bits of colored glass
A kaleidoscope of colors, patterns dance across the floor
Like memories in bits and pieces, each beautiful alone
but together becoming something more
A work of art, shining illumination for all the world
while I ponder what the new year holds in store

Look Through My Window ~ The Mamas and the Papas

Our prompt today comes from Jill at J-Dubs Grin and Bear It. Thank you Jill!

1.6.19 JJJ
Full moon, full view, full of promise and possibility

 

Possibility

Branches dance in the wind
swaying like lovers slow dancing
a few puffy clouds skitter
across the azure blue sky
I sit by my fireplace warm and snug
watching the deer graze
paying no heed to the cold wind
or melting snow drifts
We share our joy the deer and I
of sunlit warmth and blue sky
of greening grass yet to come
the promise and possibility of spring

Blowin in the Wind ~Bob Dylan

time goes by

The Watcher

We give them life
we watch them grow
we see them learn
but even so
we cannot help but wonder
what future lies ahead
like tracks on new-fallen snow
we savor ever step
watching the way they go
’til one day we discover
the child we reared is grown
busy now with jobs and life
and children of their own
