One Single Impression: Black and White

Throes of Love;
Shades of Doubt

saying you love me so
do you tell me the truth
black and white, shades of gray

I can feel your passion
fully I share your joy
wondering will you stray

still I do feel better
hearing you really care
come what I'm here to stay

2.  My mother (1911-1999) died at age 88.  I can see her now, sitting in her aging rocker, a half-way cooled cup of coffee with sugar and lots of cream on the chair's arm, ready and waiting for watching her favorite college football team, the University of Nebraska ( Go Big Red!!! ) Corn Huskers.
3.  Pictured above is my beagle dog, Adi, and a wooden lawn caricature of 'Harry Husker' who was one of the Nebraska Team's former mascot. (link to mascot info blog).  Both Adi and I are fans of the University Nebraska football team.
