Just for fun: Geraniums, poetry, and pictures!
When I put together yesterday's post, I collected my geranium pictures and found I had enough nice ones for two posts... Hence, this post.
So I looked through my favorite book of poetry, Reflections on a Gift of Watermelon Pickle... And Other Modern Verse. Published in 1966, I chuckled at the sub-title which contains the words "modern verse." Compared to who? Shakespeare? Yeah, then it's still modern.
I found a suitable poem for the rest of my geraniums. Why?
Because the poet, William Carlos Williams takes the ordinary and elevates it into poetry.
I give you...
This Is Just to Say
I have eaten
that were in
you were probably
they were delicious
and so cold.
For breakfast most weekdays I enjoy a five ingredient smoothie: whey powder, milk, banana, Splenda, and frozen blueberries -- so sweet and so cold. (And a pretty purple.)
I noticed that yesterday was my 50th blog entry! Woo-hoo! I remember the title of my first entry. It was... This is just to say... from October 22nd.
Deja vu all over again.
