Morning with Maxie

"I do not know which to prefer,
The beauty of inflections
Or the beauty of innuendoes,
The blackbird whistling
Or just after." *

Some mornings
even the coffee cup
refuses to sit up straight.

"Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird"

  1. Such beautiful photos of greens shown through filtered light! You live in such beauty!

  2. So green and lush. I love this kind of countryside. Really contrasts with the countrysides Lana and I saw on our vacation

  3. Lovely, lush, green, the warmth of companionship and children too. And a lovely cup of coffee and cream- a perfect Sunday!


  4. That was a delightful post! I love the first poem. I heard the echo of the blackbird's song. Love the sihlouette of the bird, the dog in front of the house, the website adddress and the cup of espresso. I could live in your post for a while! Thanks.

  5. Ah...dear Maxie

    I was drawing a 'Maxie', two of them got sent to Paris.
    Doube dose of long-haired darlings like Maxie.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
