Floral Fragrance

Flowers of Summer, sunflowers, yellow pink tinged roses, pink Lily

A delight to the eyes

Bright and bold, soft and fragile

The flowers of summer

National Ice Cream Day

Donut Ice Cream Sandwich, yellow and white summer flowers

Sunny Sunday morn

Purple cotton candy drips

Giggling like a child

I watch a balloon artist

Create happiness with air

Tanka

This morning I spontaneously decided to be a kid again as I read a post saying our local ice cream shop was giving away ice cream sandwiches to celebrate “National Ice Cream Day”.

And not just any ice cream sandwiches! These were specially created from our local donut shop! A fresh donut ice cream sandwich! Wow! Just the pick me up I needed to start the day I thought!

So instead of lounging on my comfy couch this morning, I got up, and went out to greet the day and was pleasantly rewarded!

I love summer, ice cream, donuts and balloons! And it was nice to be a kid again! 😊

Pencil vs Poodle

Were you a Pencil or a Poodle

Skirt fan, back in the days of rockn’roll?

Dancing slow with The Diamonds

Strolling in a pencil skirt,

Or swing’n the poodle skirt

Jitterbugging with

Bill Haley in your

Saddle shoes,

When teens

Danced.

Veggies vs Fruit

Fresh farm vegetables and fruit at the Market

Yesterday’s market

Abundance of fruit

All my favorites

Lavishly displayed

Berries red and blue

Cherries gleaming gold

Sugar kissed peaches

Fruitful paradise

Yet, vegetables

Were speaking to me

Not in audible

Like in Veggie Tales

But with visual

Attraction and scent

Vegetables spoke

Of their beauty

Fruit lover listened
