Sneak Peek

--Margaret Widdemer

They call them pussy-willows,
But there's no cat to see
Except the little furry toes
That stick out on the tree.
I think that very long ago,
When I was just born new,
There must have been whole pussy-cats
Where just the toes stick through----
And every Spring it worries me,
I cannot ever find
Those willow-cats that ran away
And left their toes behind!

I was out of town
for a visit with my Mom,
and was pleasantly surprised
when I spotted these
little harbingers of Spring!
It won't be long!...I hope.

Happy Weekend!
With Love and Hugs.

Steady As She Goes

Some of you know
that I ride a motorcycle.
A Harley Davidson, Sportster.
I belong to a small ladie's
riding club.
That lady in the middle...
so does she.
She's a "Merry Motor Maid".
84 years strong,
and still riding along
on her '04 Heritage Softail.

She spoke at our "Garage Party"
this past Friday night.
Shared her stories of
more than 70 years of motorcycles.
She started riding at 16.
She's had 11 Harleys!
Her favorite rides have been in Europe.
4,000 miles in 8 countries.
Long, winding roads; without a car in sight.
She referred to them as "Heaven".

She announced to us
that she's being inducted
into the "Harley Davidson
Hall of Fame".
Now, she's off to South Carolina,
then Alabama,touring the South for a while,
but she's looking forward
to her next "cross country" ride with her club
which will be to Sturgis!
And,...she'll be 91!
Keep an eye out for her!

Someday soon this frozen tundra
will be warm and sunny with
thunderous motorcycles
passing through.
And I will be as happy
as a clam.

Happy Sunday!
With love and hugs.

Seeing Red

Red flowers that is.
I can't seem to get enough
of the Anenome bouquet.
The flowers are truly,
unbelievably... beautiful!
I think I've captured them
at every conceivable angle
at every time of day and night,
in sun and shade.
It was the flower
that made me happy!
There will be more to come,
but I think after today,
I'll switch gears to a new color!
Happy Red...for now.

With love and hugs.

What is Love?

"I don't pretend to know
what Love is for everyone,
but I can tell you what it is for me;
Love is knowing all about someone
and still wanting to be with them
more than any other person,
Love is trusting them enough to tell them
everything about yourself,
including the things
you might be ashamed of,
Love is feeling comfortable and safe
with someone,
but still getting weak knees
when they walk into a room
and smile at you."

Happy Valentine's Day!
With Love to the Moon and back.

Art and Love

Art enables us to
find ourselves
and loose ourselves
at the same time.
