aviary water ripples
penguins free swim
all on a sunday picnic at the zoo with the family.
“color is the fruit of life.”
the ponies and friends all came out for the dance party
this time is was a love fest and tea
everyone was welcome
all colors, sizes, shapes and species
they were in their finest fancy fashions
and ready to have fun.
one pony told them she didn’t want to come
because it looked like a boring party
they were kind of sad but then they thought
maybe some other ponies had been mean to her once
and she was just acting that way
because she didn’t want to get her feelings hurt again
so they invited her back and showed her how to be nice.
“kindness is always fashionable, and always welcome.”
at the nature center for grandie v’s 6th birthday celebration
the scientist helps us to measure our wingspans
before we take a stroll outside to find this beautiful bird
rescued and healing a broken wing
whose wingspan we hope will return one day
and we are grateful to have our wings.
“happiness makes up for height for what it lacks in length.”
my brother, scott
who never stops raising money for research and awareness
in honor of my nephew, hazen, gone way too soon
so that others may stay.
thank you to his mackinac island dock porter brothers from so many years ago.
