Love at first leap

I fell in love today with a stranger.

.

As we passed

He jumped up, paws on my belly,

He looked right into my eyes and smiled…

.

I saw him later,

In the competition obedience rings…

Not once, not twice….

But jumping everywhere he and his handler could….

.

Yeah, did I mention,

He was taken….

.

Thats ok,

We had a moment.

.

Wonder if he has any brothers….

Hope

Aspirations begin with inspirations…

Breathe.

Sunset /Sunrise

Crossing the bridge

Four birds in flight

The sun is setting

Only to be rising somewhere else

Date night

Out side the theatre,

A committed pair are out for a stroll.

Sometimes it is good to waddle along together,

Even when you can fly.

Swoop

V

Driving in the van,

An owl swoops across my windshield

And up

onto the power lines at the end of the street.

.

I sit at the stop sign,

Heart pounding,

Watching the owl, who seems nonplussed.

Small joys

The floor was dancing with tiny toys,

And bouncing happinesses

Ricocheted around us all.

Eggs

They say not to put all your eggs in one basket,

Isn’t that inaccurate?

Nature teaches us to do just that!

Perhaps the lesson is not to put other’s eggs into your basket…
