Splendor seen

Pinprick sweetness
lightness of color suits moods,
whimsical pink calls the lens
come play for just a spell.
Stunning magenta reaches for skies
and the splendor seen,
captured beauty standing proud.

Reminders of childhood puppets
hair standing in silly colors
with a smile and laughter that filled rooms,
eliciting the response in return
to just be
in the throes of youth
the playful sights always caught the mind
and still resides within
somewhere beneath sun filled skies
the plucked bloom withers
so we learned to let it lie
in its comfortable bed
waiting to be seen some other day
by new eyes seeking
a spot of solitude and beauty.

There is a tree down the block that has these lovely flowers on it, so I thought I’d share. Reminds me of hair on some Muppets (remember them?) and now my G friend has me singing the mana mana song yet again. Shivery day out, mid thirties here in Florida and almost time to walk the pups. I shall slip into my thoughts and think of cocoa and warm fires ๐Ÿ™‚ and the petal pink colored flowers I affectionately call “who” flowers….like Horton Hears a Who. Enjoy and good morning my friends.

  1. Good morning Super E,
    feeling better just a bit blah lately with the cold weather, somedays it just gets hard to warm up it seems, guess the blood has thinned in this climate ๐Ÿ™‚ yesterday finally hit the 60’s but I’ll take it for sure. Love to all there and your note here lifted my soul so nicely this morning as I slowly wake up. No snow blower needed unless he and yourself are attached to it on a plane to visit ๐Ÿ™‚ but save the baggage costs and leave it home, just bring a shovel for snow castles ๐Ÿ™‚ smiles and hugs and Happiest of Mondays to you โค

  2. Oh…beautiful. Reminds me of mimosa blooms–all feathery pink and fragrant! Missing you, and so sorry to read above about sore throat and 7 days of nonstop work. Yuck! I know you’ll be your cheery best. I also hope for lots of good sleep every chance you get. The cold weather has kept me inside for too long now! Can’t wait for it to get above freezing. Which will, unfortunately, be messy wet–and a bit icy, but better than this deep freeze dry air. Smudge sends happy new year meows, and Lucy sends heartfelt heartbeats through the air to you! ๐Ÿ™‚ D says let him know if you need a snow-blower down there. He grew up in Sarasota, you know….(well, all his teenage life). Take care, dear Kim. XXX

    Take care, stay warm!
