smiles & gratitude

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

handsome, handsome (Sam) + Missy D (Winnie Dixon) + 1 Prince OATG* + me + a hayfield

+ waves of rippling gold
+ a sky as blue can be
+ a red & muddy just plowed field
+ field mice to hunt
+ scrunching grass to roll in
+ too many enticing scents
+ a tree line of spruce & birch
+ racing clouds, puffs of white
+ ravens & crows soaring
+ plenty of smiles & much gratitude

* of All Things Good

listen here fields of gold by Eva Cassidy - thanks Chez Caesar
