Monday Moaning or Monday Marveling?

Marveling at two poetic views of peace …


Each of you a bordered country,
Delicate and strangely made proud,
Yet thrusting perpetually under siege.
Your armed struggles for profit
Have left collars of waste upon
My shore, currents of debris upon my breast.
Yet, today I call you to my riverside,
If you will study war no more.
Come, clad in peace and I will sing the songs
The Creator gave to me when I
And the tree and stone were one.
— Maya Angelou

I Can’t Help It …

… I know I’ve already posted my Five Friday Happy Bringers today, but I just got back from a late afternoon walk in my neighborhood here in Historic District Savannah, and I MUST show you what I saw …

The azaleas are just glorious this spring late winter.

The church spires kept urging me to look heavenward.

But there is just so much beauty here below!

1. Green lunch.

Fresh green peas, turnips, Napa cabbage, all from our Forsyth Park Farmers Market, Savannah, last Saturday.

2. Spoiling HR (Husband Robert, you should know that by now!) with a new “foot spa”

(I’m beginning to wonder how much longer he’s going to play this “I’m-so-sick card.”)

3. Grandaughter Isabelle at her FIRST night of gymnastics last night.

4. Grapes.

5. Yellow.

Weekend Joy to You!

Me and My Shadow

🎶 Me and my shadow strolling down the avenue. 🎵

Morning walk along nearby Savannah River, with the Savannah Bridge to South Carolina in the distance.

“When I go out on sunny days,
Why, there it is beside me:
And there it skips and there it plays,
And from it I can’t hide me.
I cannot run away from it,
It runs as fast as Fido;
And if I stand or if I sit
It stands and sits as I do.”
