A Day at the Beach

Beach at Ft. DeSoto
Sunlight glitters brilliantly on the calm waters of the Gulf.  Clear skies fill with birds, planes and parasailors.  It is still summer on the beach; umbrellas sprout like multicolored flowers across the sand.  Boats dot the horizon, fishing, sailing, working, relaxing.  Every day is a vacation, every night is a party.  Life's short, enjoy yourself.

Not Like Everyone Else

Lilac, one of Mom's favorite flowers

Mom once said "she's not like everyone else" about me, and I guess it's true. But what she didn't say was that she wasn't like everyone else either, and neither was Daddy.  They were very special people with no limit on their love or generosity.  I'm so blessed that these two people were my parents.

It's a Cat's Life

Cats in sprawling repose
Or curled up nose to nose
Sleeping the day away
Dreaming of a day at play
Rolling, blinking, unseeing eyes
A whimper and a heavy sigh
A big stretch, blink and stare
Stretch again and rise with flair
Wander out for a snack
Then slowly wander back
To start over again

Basking in the late afternoon sun, I savor each remaining moment.  Overhead a hawk circles ever higher as if winding himself up.  Suddenly he spies an unfortunate little field mouse who, unknowingly, was about to be invited to lunch, and not as a guest.  The hawk, now in perfect position, dives.  Nature's original fast food.

(My first) Friday Flash 55.
