Delectable Confection


Sweet colorful treat

Never before tasted

Gifted by neighbor

Delight to the eyes as well as

Tantilizing to palate

Love Found

Love Rock
A pleasant surprise

Placed on a random bench

Tiny “Love Rock”


Today I was blessed to find a “Love Rock” at just the right time to brighten up my day. 

If you have never heard of “Love Rocks” I invite you to check out their website at where you can read the heart touching story of how and why “Love Rocks” started and perhaps you might want to participate in sharing the love as well.

Morning Wonder

This morning I am wondering
What this June day will bring
As dark clouds fill the sky
And the sun is nowhere nigh
My flowers heads hang low
As a chilly wind does blow
Then suddenly the clouds fade away
Giving me a beautiful sunny day!
June, each day you’re a surprise
And a morning wonder to my eyes
