Slow Bloomers

Day 42 - March 31, 2020 - This is a comparison of our neighbors tulip tree (on the left) to ours on the right. Our neighbors tree was already dropping petals! In April of 2020 I posted my study on how long it would take for the Tulip (or magnolia) tree out front to bloom. [...]

Night and Day

Night and Day

Banish Fun Days To the tune of Manic Monday. 2AM already  I was just in the middle of a scream   I was wishin' I were sleeping  I was hoping this was all a bad dream  But I can't escape  Cause then I guess my life would go my way These are the nights When you [...]

Skies and Sighs

Skies and Sighs

Sky High Sighs How many times can she sigh sky high? Okay that’s just silly  This must be some "parboiled poetry" Truly Really Why do my stupid poems make me laugh? Especially when this car's out of gas? Must be the fumes.  Tina S.W September 7, 2020 September Wind It swept through her hair like [...]

Life As A Tree

Life As A Tree

Years ago (many years ago) I wrote a poem called "My life as a Tree." This poem was written before I ever knew Jesus. It was quite depressing and not at all hopeful. I must have tossed it out for this very reason.  Life wasn't so funny at the time, but now (even when I'm [...]

Bud to Bloom

Bud to Bloom

Tulip Tree "Time-lapse" The Tulip Tree is problaby more commonly known as the Saucer Magnolia, but Tulip Tree fit better into my trio of "T" words. Plus, my mother-in-law always refers to it as such, so I like it. This was a really good exercise in patience! These guys take their time. Not a whole [...]

Signs of Life

Signs of Life

I took all but one of these photos last Monday when the sunshine beckoned me out of our Hobbit hole. That's not to say that this suite is a hole. It's a very nice basement suite. However, we are partially underground. Thus, my dad refers to us as ground dwellers for good reason. Every year [...]
