she seldom will pick up

she rarely puts away

she often knocks over the paint brush cup

she forgets immediately what i say…

dusty & smeared & stained

a housewife's great regret & pain…


but to the photographer such a colorful display of untidy

grabs the eye & waves a hand & says howdy


Linking up with  again with Shadow Shot Sunday 2.

Yesterday I was reading Robert Louis Stevenson's picture book of A Child's Garden of Verses, {an old vintage edition with illistrations by Gyo Fujikawa my favorite illustrator}


to the babe and was reminded how much I like little poems about everyday life.  This post is a humble contribution.
