Last Night I Dreamed of Chickens

Yippee, we have eggs!

Last night I dreamed of chickens,
there were chickens everywhere,
they were standing on my stomach,
they were nesting in my hair,
they were pecking at my pillow,
they were hopping on my head,
they were ruffling up their feathers
as they raced about my bed.

They were on the chairs and tables,
they were on the chandeliers,
they were roosting in the corners,
they were clucking in my ears,
there were chickens, chickens, chickens
for as far as I could see...
when I woke today, I noticed
there were eggs on top of me.

This wonderful, silly poem I found by
Jack Prelutsky, pretty much sums up my life at this point.

They're everywhere and each one more endearing than the next,
all wanting attention!

I have always enjoyed chickens and their crazy antics.
Each one has such a distinct personality.

Between the chickens and the turkeys,
it's pretty much poultry all the time!

I hope you enjoy their goofy faces as much as I do!

Peace and

Happy Gardening~

Sweet Summer

   Sweet, Sweet Summer

Like a child emerging from a cold Northern Summer's lake,
lovingly being wrapped in a warm towel

Campfires that blaze and burn with the lights
of memories past and times that will be

Summer brings the youthfulness of a naked star lit
Goddess dancing upon a moon lit beach

Summer is the beginning of a newly emerging renaissance,
one that dissipates quite quickly

Children are freed to the Sunshine and laughter that is heard in abundance,
like a tickling of the soul

Nature matures into a fine looking creation
that covers lovers hidden in her grassy knolls

The raptureless times spent out doing nothing,
engaged in the Summer's lazy afternoons

 The trickle of sweat that runs coolly down the spine
and those goose bump chills,
that day's first refreshment

The unnatural way water seemingly tastes
more refreshing than in Autumn,
or Spring

Oh - Sweet Summer -

Sweet, sweet, Summer -

What a wonderful thing!

Peace, as Always,

And Happy Gardening!
