Mirrored

Is that really me or an imposter,

A pretender that looks like me?

That kind of action I don’t foster!

Is that really me or an imposter?

I dont see my name on the roster,

But a resemblance I do see!

Is that really me or an imposter,

A pretender that looks like me?

Triolet

While waiting for my grandson today I caught an amusing site on video. My daughter’s porch has a mirrored medicine cabinet sitting on it waiting to be carried into the house that apparently caught the eye of a little bird.

I sat watching as the little bird saw his reflection in the mirror and kept trying to figure out who that other bird was. It was very cute to watch.

A Remaining Robin

Robin in winter rain

Abundant food sources

Vanished with the Springtime

Lonely Robin

Seeking a fruit bearing bush

Wanders among the raindrops

Tanka

This Robin chose not to fly South for the Winter I guess. I saw him hopping around my yard in the rain and was surprised to find out that not all Robins fly South, but some stick around and eat fruit in the Wintertime. (Photo is not very clear as I had to snap it quickly using my phone thru my patio window from quite a distance)

Life’s Ordinary Things

Blue Bird singing, Red Rose blooming, Watercolor by Leonas Designs

Bird song,

First rose in bloom.

Enjoying the simple things.

Feel of rain, and the warmth of sun

Blessings,

Priceless, often overlooked,

Treasures are free,

And in our lives

Abound.

Butterfly Cinquain

Find beauty and joy in the ordinary things that life brings.

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” –Eleonora Duse

Today’s Choice

What will you be today?

A beautiful bird

Singing a cheerful song,

Or a negative voice

That tears down others hopes?

What will you be today?

A beautiful flower

Sharing its sweet fragrance,

Or a cold bitter brook

Drowning in past regrets?

What will you be today?

A heart filled with love

Spreading joy to everyone,

Or just an empty shell

Casting shadows of doubt?

What will you be today?

The choice is yours alone.

You can change the world

Or let the world change you.
