Ah, Life is Poetry . . .

(This picture has absolutely nothing to do with the following verse!  It was zoomed from the parking lot at Costco, proving that Kirkland brands even have control of the weather!)

I love blank verse,

though saying something is probably preferred.

I have a passion for free verse,

but getting paid,

so much the better.

And since we’re talking about poetry:

Diamantés are a girl’s best friend.

(Another totally unrelated photograph below.  Of course, if you do find a connection, you could probably teach college English!)

    What wonders the Costco parking lot contains! Ours is in Wilsonville when two weeks in a row I was treated to fabulous frozen fog. Flipping back through the calendar I see it was lovely in fog, in fall, summer and spring. 😉

    I love the poem and I think the photos do symbolize that many wonders in life are free. God gets paid only with our thanks. As do you and I … “thanks!” ;D

    • Good comment! I hope you saw the real format of the poem. I went in this morning to tweak something and messed it all up so had to re-enter! Technology hates me. 🙂 Good morning.

    Poetry is scenic, many landscapes created by nature– And, diamonds, well diamonds, their value is only skin deep; all the diamonds in the world are less valuable than one creation of nature, either animate or inanimate…

  6. Gorgeous photos and words.

I would love to hear from you!
