Taking Time To Smell The Flowers

Honeysuckle growing on a white picket fence

The sweet smell of the Honeysuckle

Wafted up, waking my senses,

Lulling me to stop awhile

And drink in the fragrance

Of the tiny white

Blossoms amid

The green leaves

On the

Fence

Belated Beauty

Creamsicle Sky, sunset, Oregon

Celebrating late

National Creamsicle Day

Creamsicle sunset

Haiku

Tonite we had the most beautiful sunset in different shades and layers of orange, peach and cream colors. The camera on my phone just didn’t capture the colors exactly as I saw them because as I looked at it I thought of a Creamsicle which I have always loved to eat!

A quick Google search told me that National Creamsicle Day was on August 14th which was two days ago, but the sky was cloudy then and there wasn’t a sunset, so I guess God decided to celebrate it late and gave us this creamsicle sky tonight! 😊

Lunch

Tomato and Loaf of Bread

A link to the past

When I was a kid in the 50’s my school lunch, in a brown paper sack, consisted of a tomato sandwich made from mom’s homemade bread and a garden fresh tomato. I still love that combo.

Presidental Proverb

Teddy Roosevelt pic and quote

“Speak softly”

Said Roosevelt

“And carry a big stick”

Passive-Agressive acumen

Old adage

Cinquain

On my walk today I met a gentleman who, in actuality, was walking with a big stick.

As we passed by one another and nodded a greeting, I spoke the quote to him and he smiled. “ Teddy Roosevelt” he said.

“ Oh, I thought it was Snoopy!” I said laughing.

When I got home a Google search proved the stick walker was right!

Guess I got my history lesson for the day!

Plus, a poem inspiration. 😊
