Friends-You and Me

Quote “We are all different flowers from the same garden”  image from Pinterest
image from Pinterest

You go to bed before the sun sets

I am a night owl, burning the midnight oil

Yet we are friends

You like hazelnuts, spice cake, and tea

I like licorice, mint and coffee

Yet we are friends

You like cool nights and enjoy the rain

I like it warm and enjoy hot summer days

Yet we are friends

You like flip flops and air conditioning

I like sneakers and natural air

Yet we are still friends

Your skin is a different color from mine

My skin is a different color from yours

Yet we are friends

We are all different

We are all unique

That’s what makes us each special

We all have likes and dis-likes

Our skin maybe a different color

But we can still all be friends

We can agree to disagree

Walk in friendship and love

And enjoy a life of harmony

Sharing with each other

Every nation, tribe, language and people.

For we are all God’s Masterpiece according to Ephesians 2:10

March’s Marquee

Yellow and White Crocus blooming

“Coming soon” the signs say

Bits of color speak loud and clear

As I walk the dreary way

Coming soon” the signs say

Birds sing of a brighter day

Spring color will soon be here

“Coming soon” the signs say

Bits of color speak loud and clear

Busy Bee

I seem to be obsessed

By all the colors of Spring

Bee in my bonnet

I can be found snapping pics

In random neighbor’s yards

Tanka

Today it was so nice out again I just had to take a walk down the block to check out all the neighborhood yards to see how much Spring growth had appeared.

Well I was pleasantly rewarded as one neighbor had an abundance of vibrant

crocus blooming. The bees and I were happy and one even paused for a pic😊

Springtime Awakenings

Enjoying the new life

Springing up all around me

Singing and dancing

With the birds and daffodils

Shaking off winter doldrums

Sometimes…

Original watercolor of a sunset
Watercolor sunset by Leona J. Atkinson ©️2020

Sunsets like life,

End suddenly, shocking us

With bursts of color,

Or subtlely fade away

With faint hues of calm repose.

In the North

Sunset in the northern sky, blue and pink sky

A phenomenon

The sky was speaking tonight

In soft blues and pinks

Haiku

Sunset tonight in my area must have been spectacular for as I looked out my North window I saw an amazing sky layered in blues and pinks. I can only imagine what the Western sky displayed!
