Flu

Corona Virus symbol

Some words we like

Others not so much

These days it’s true

There’s one word

No one wants to hear

“CoronaVirus”

We can’t stop our ears

From hearing it’s sound

Or close our eyes

To block it from sight

But we can focus

Our minds to not dwell

On this dismal word

We can use prayer

To ask for our God’s help

And for His wisdom

And strength at this time

Syllabic Verse

Praying this word is soon no longer part of our vocabulary.

Serenity

Picture of sun streaming through trees and Quote by Lao Tzu
http://quotes.land/nature-doesnt-hurry/

Sitting here on my couch

Gazing out my window

Things quiet and serene

Sunshine steaming down

Upon the daffodils

Birds happily feasting

As squirrel scurries by

Nature seems content

Not a worry nor care

Oh that we were there

Syllabic Verse

“Nature doesn’t hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” – Lao Tzu

This quote was on the tag of my favorite herbal tea bag. Ah, yes, that mankind could model nature…

My fair weather friend!

Make yourself welcome,

Winter’s at it’s end.”

Kenickie,

“Hope your day’s

Peachy keen,

Jelly Bean!”

From, Rizzo.

Syllabic Verse

A bit of humor here today as I am remembering the 50’s and a favorite saying of that time ” peachy keen jelly bean” which was also a line in one of my favorite movies, “Grease”. As I was creating this peach collage today for an Instagram challenge I am participating in, I was reminded  of this saying which brought me a smile, so I thought I would share it with all of you. 🙂
