Veggies and Poetry

I can't remember a time when
thoughts of your sweet,
toothless smile didn't interrupt my day,
when the scent of your honey-colored hair
didn't linger in my nose,
blocking the potent, often offensive,
scents of the city.
Sometimes, out of nowhere,
I'll remember one of the funny things you've done,
and I can't help to tell everyone about it;
I can't help to brag.
You're growing so big now.
Almost as big as my pride grows
when I recount all that you've learned in your two short,
wonderful years of life.
You are my treasure,
my sweetness, my girl,
my little baby Bee.

Yellow-headed Blackbird

Perched on gate,
A worm to eat,
A sound from the ground,
No doubt he has found a hearty meal satisfying,
Immediately gratifying.
Must be sure no one spies,
Over sleeping dogs he flies.
A swooping technique,
The prize in his beak.
Wings spanned wide, now he’s in full flight,
Lands safe in a tree, he's hidden from sight.
The hunt is over, the worm ingested.
It was worth every moment of time he invested.
He rests contented.

    Good luck going veggie, Michelle!  My 9 y/o is the same way about meat-he doesn't like to eat it.  Keep us posted on your progress!
