Looking At the Sky … Mistletoe in the Texas spring sky


It's spring now in Texas
What will mistletoe do
when summer's heat comes on?
It hides--in green tree leaves.

I found these in another tree
for your to see up close.

Word for the day, REMEMBER.
Remember this spot for next
New Year's Eve.

Adi and I found the mistletoe while we were walking.
She would rather be looking for squirrels.

One Single Impression: Twilight

twilight grey and dim
it's not my favorite time
time of life's season

twilight for child's play
nice out cool can barely see
fireflies light their way

twilight for the pets
please may we be fed our due
then we watch you feast

workers love twilight
clean their tools wash their faces
null vicious cycle

mothers take deep breath
cook feed bathe kids turn their beds
then night is for self

who dies in twilight
that question asked of Google
"is" is not defined

King David was old
could not keep warm even when
put covers o'er him
young virgin to attend him
lie beside him keep him warm

(more in 1 Kings 1:1-4)

Note: David did not have intimate relations with the young lady:
(more in 1 Kings 1:1-4)
1 When King David was old and well advanced in years, he could not keep warm even when they put covers over him. 2 So his servants said to him, "Let us look for a young virgin to attend the king and take care of him. She can lie beside him so that our lord the king may keep warm."
3 Then they searched throughout Israel for a beautiful girl and found Abishag, a Shunammite, and brought her to the king. 4 The girl was very beautiful; she took care of the king and waited on him, but the king had no intimate relations with her.

Jeremiah who wrote this may have had a censoring wife (Jim's reasoning). She said this was not good to write, people would think wrongly of David. So he added the half line, "but the king had no intimate relations with her."

Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do. Edgar Dégas
The same may go for poetry? (whatever, I enjoy painting with the words!).
