making new friends

making new friends

Everyday during my early morning and evening walks, I have been making new friends.

I get plenty of these guys everyday.

This tiny frog was less than an inch long.

Then, there was this adorable rabbit.

Every thing was fine until this guy showed up. I am a city boy and unaccustomed to these creatures.

Then, I started feeling all Crocodile Dundee, when this guy stuck his head up every time I passed.

I really shouldn’t complain. Two weeks ago, a family in Tampa found this visitor at their door early one morning.

I am doing well. Staying safe. Getting exercise and following a healthy diet.

Take good care of yourself. Be safe.

Your Love Always Surrounds Me

In a recent conversations with my lovely friend writer Sarah Potter I found myself challenged to write a poem mixing nature with love.  Here is my submission.  If you would like to read Sarah Potter’s beautiful words you can find her at Sarah Potter Writes.

Your Love Always Surrounds Me

.

Alone on a park bench
A kaleidoscope of butterflies perched on me
colouring my loneliness
describing your love so tenderly
The sun blushed on me
A soft breeze grazed my trembling cheek
The butterflies smiled at me
These are the signs of your love I so seek
They led me to an oak
It stood tall and firm with leaves of green
Then a flower in bloom
Akin to the beauty of a love so serene
Waterfalls speak of you
You caress me like drops of falling rain
Drench yourself in her love
Their sweet words slowly eased my pain
They gave me much to take
No matter where I go or what I see
Now, I am never alone
Cause your love always surrounds me
