Number seventeen of thirty-one, over halfway through the month of the Two Writing Teachers March Challenge.
And today, celebrate St. Patrick's Day and Poetry Friday with Robyn Hood Black at her blog, Life On The Deckle Edge! She's brought a bit of the green in her poetry for us! Thanks, Robyn!
I think this might be the final time for my "snowy" Poetry Friday button. I know that many of you have had too much snow to find a shamrock, but here in Colorado, except in the mountains, it's over 70 degrees and I've had to begin watering. I'm not bragging. We really could use a lot of that snow!
Read this quote carefully. I believe it holds some hope for us in this chaotic political year:
"In Ireland, the inevitable never happens and the unexpected constantly occurs."
Sir John Pentland Mahaffy.

A pair of crows-
visitors each morning-
startle when we open the door,
fly away in tandem,
a steadfast couple.
They soon return to gather
the breakfast peanuts
and settle at the birdbath.
Each holds a peanut,
During the munching, their
husky calls reach our own breakfast table.
Here are my husband and myself,
reading news bits to each other,
chomping on granola and blueberries.
