1605



a delicate breeze
trees at the river side lean
the blue butterfly

perched on a rock
the song of a grackle
swift in passing

❧✿❧

a beach umbrella
the perfect reading tent
splash of waves

yearning for salt
tiny shells in the sand
opened chip chip

❧✿❧

an uncut flower
who know the name
of this wayside one

plucking petals
daisy tales of true love
or not true love

❧✿❧

ornate envelope
post marked 2014
a new year card

heart shaped chocolates
such a hopeless romantic
his doting wife

Ha, when we pick those petals we really don't know which one we will end with, do we? I hope for the ending with 'love.' Smiles. Happy Sunday, Gillena.
