Fanciful and Fluid

 Dear Friends,

My week was fluid.
Like a siesta... key to survival.
Like slipping away.
Like the children splashing too much water out of the tub.
Like walks down memory lane.
Like time flying away.
Like a blue jay.

It was fluid blue.
Like a Sunday Sonata.
Like anticipation.
Like my first visit to Trader Joe's.
Like Jane Austen, again and again.
Like the clutch of children around me.
Like my daughter's favorite color.
Like soft azure. 


My week was fanciful.
Like windswept thoughts.
Like wishes.
Like some realities.
Like little feet doing a snow dance.
Like breath in the cold.
Like an ice age.

It was fanciful.
Like the wild blue yonder.
Like wanderlust.
Like doggy day-dreams.
Like pleasant company.
Like wistful goodbyes.
Like an azure afternoon.

The Prairie Hen

P.S. Thanks for letting me get away with a 2 in 1 post... A girl's gotta catch a break when-ever she can! {wink}
