People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us. ~Iris Murdoch, Irish and British novelist and philosopher
If you’re always racing to the next moment, what happens to the one you’re in? ~Author Unknown
Even nature takes a little break.
She pauses between each season
To catch her breath, so to speak.
Within a season too,
Flowers bloom and rest.
All of us need
Some time off.
Note: As you probably guessed, it’s time for me to take a wee pause. Happy Fathers’ Day to all the dads reading this, and I’ll be back shortly. By the way, this poetry form is a Nonet, nine lines with a decreasing number of syllables in each line.

While the Illinois Governor has declared yet another month of lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, he can’t stop the arrival of Spring.
I managed to get outside the other day and was amazed at how many trees and flowers are in bloom, how pretty the day was, and how few people were enjoying it!
Take a look, won’t you?
Man is the only critter who feels the need to label things as flowers or weeds. ~Author unknown
I really wanted to get out and take some photos of Spring, but it’s cold.
And the flowers and trees are either lagging behind their usual schedule, or we humans are just more anxious than ever. Which would make sense, seeing as how we’re locked inside.
“May God bless you at Easter,
and keep you all year through.
May God give you all the faith you need,
to make your dreams come true.
May His love and wisdom always help,
to guide you on your way.
May His light shine down upon you now,
to bless your Easter Day.” — Irish Prayer, Author Unknown
Note: A blessed Easter to you and yours!
We are going to have peace even if we have to fight for it. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower, American army general and 34th president of the U.S.
Anybody who knows me knows I love bunnies.
Just not in my flowers.
