The title is taken from the Beatles song: My Guitar Gently Weeping, which reaches deep within my soul. I’ve posted a link to the video, which is an artistic trifecta. Watch, listen, enjoy. 😊 🌎 ✌🏻 ❤️

As a parent I remember when my children were this age. I too would bathe them in the kitchen sink 😊 so fun also much easier.


Bloom Cycles (acrostic)*

Beyond my window, petunias

Languish in the midday sunshine

Opening with the morning light

Only a few fade by end of day

My eyes observe as they transition


*Note: my mother had an affinity for flowers, so it’s not far reaching that I do as well. Photo was taken by me of my flower box. Enjoy the musical sound of petunias.

🌎✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.
