If the flowers are daisies. . . .


. . . there must be you, Pauline.

My friend who paints, enchants

me with glittering danglers,

surprises me with pretty

wide-eyed, eyelashed

young women and

rainbow colored

dream catchers,




high among

the stars and

into the galaxy!

Her recent daisy painting,

has multiple trademark

pastels in mint green,

turquoise, purple

and light lavender.

The white petals are wispy

at tips and her yellow centers

become defined by brown,

golden-edged shadows.

Please feel Pauline’s touch

upon your soul, as you

check out her art

and recent

Oh, and please don’t eat the daisies!

(a bow to essayist Jean Kerr, 1957 book)

One-Liner Wednesday – Try the Other Door

No Facilities

Um, excuse me…this is a dog, you know

Monday and Tuesday gave us a break from almost a week of hot – 90°f (32.2°c) – days. Monday brought some heavy rain, but yesterday was just a cool, cloudy day. Maddie looked at me as if to say “it’s not too hot to sit outside today” then she looked at her cot, which is her subtle way of hinting. So, we sat.

After a few minutes, I noticed Maddie focusing on the driveway. The little guy in the photos kept getting closer, stopping only to stand for a while in that cute “do you have some nuts for me?” pose.

I tried to explain that Maddie really is dangerous. Then I told the squirrel to try the front yard.
