Haiku

 Secret
 
The diamond she wore
Sparkled with bright rainbow hues
But her heart was dark

And other poetic verse:

FEATHER
 

I watched a soft, white feather
lift and twist in front of an unseen breeze.
It rose from the ground in a silent protest,
unable to resist.

Catching the sunlight in its warm center,
the feather briefly reflected soft, rainbow hues
against the white of its self,
turning, swirling,
wrapped in the embrace of its captor.

 
The gentle breeze, tiring of the game,
brought the down feather tenderly to my feet,
a gift of nature.
I watched in whispering silence
as the softness settled in the grass,
the breeze passing by in search of another tumbler.
And I felt a sense of peace.

A Bird Bath, A Party, and Art

 
Bathtime for Ms. Wee.
In the tub, water running slowly,
dribbling down.
 Two plastic balls the size of golf balls...
she beaks them around, playing in the water.
Balls roll back down toward the drain, to her delight.
Jumps around like a robin hopping.
Keeps this little one entertained!!  And wet.
She will go outside to dry off.
 
Sweet Ms. Wee
 
A couple of weeks ago a gay couple we are acquainted with got married.
Still not legal in Florida, so they went to Chi Town for the ceremony.
My husband and I went to a poolside celebration at their lovely new home.
This is the gift we took.
 
It's a wood wall plaque, hand crafted by me
because that's what I do.
I hope they liked it.
 
Been busy painting.....a little.
