SO EXCITED!  Yesterday, while driving all over town, hubby and I kept noticing Chionodoxa Luciliae aka “Glory of the Snow” in the woods along the roads we drove.  We loved it!  Today, hubby found this lone flower in OUR yard!  What a gift from nature πŸ˜πŸ’™!  It is a bulb and most likely came from a friend’s generous Grape Hyacinth donation to our garden last year 😊.  I hope it takes over our whole yard!  LOL!

I like this mug that my mother got me because it’s gianormous and it’s about cats, but I don’t understand why the paw prints on it appear to be bear prints LOL!  I do believe she must’ve picked this up somewhere very shady and cheap LOL!  Oh how I love my frugal mom…πŸ˜„πŸ»πŸΎ

24 Years

Then
I was sweet 16 
standing in the high school cafeteria.
It was so loud
voices talking, laughing,
mouths chewing, drinking.
But you stood there,
I drank you in with teenage angst and awe.
You were gorgeous, tall, blond,
smiling widely down at me.
The clichΓ© lightning struck me,
took my breath away like a bad movie song.


Now
I am a too quickly aging 40.
Not so sweet, innocence gone.
You still make the air leave my chest,
my heart beat out an uneven, rapid song
beneath my aging breasts.
My matured love for you is nothing like when young,
yet my twisting gut reaction to you is the same.
Each time our pale eyes meet,
my wondering youth returns to me.
I am that naive girl,
too shy to ask you out without a threat from my best friend,
and you are that god,
just returned from Scandinavia,
smiling widely down at me.

I am dedicating this poem to my partner and husband, Scott. Β :-D

I would love feedback from you on it! Β I am always open to suggestions for improvement, words of support, and, most importantly, finding out how my work affects you personally (i.e. what you take away from it or how it makes you feel when reading it).
