D is for Dogwood

Dancer of the Quill is playing a game and she's making me play because I said I would.

Today's letter is D.

I have included a Haiku because no one liked my last poem; D


Pink, green, Dogwood blooms.
Sunshine streaming in rivers,
Flowing over bark.

Because I Said So...

Quilly who lives in Hawaii and writes and shows gorgeous photos at Just Another Day in ...Paradise? has started an ABC project at her place where you post a picture each day for each letter of the alphabet. When I made a visit at her place and saw all of her beautiful pictures I mentioned I would participate and being the tyrant she is she came here looking for me to full fill my commitment. I should be committed. So to catch up, here are A, B and C. Go check out what Quilly has done and tell her not to boss me around - I'm sensitive.

C is for Chopper

B is for Brandon

A is for Airplane

The Pain Only Lasts a Minute

This is the first of many verse.
They will get worse
before I'm through.
What can I do?

While this one is awfully bad,
I know you're glad
to see me write.
But don't take fright,

for you won't hear me whine and cry,
I've said good bye
to my writer's block
so don't you mock.
