putting out bird food
St Francis would approve
the sound of crows
two doors down top of tree
two blue jays calling
TPOS prompt … blue bird

# 1549 TPOS prompt: what you walk by but don’t see.

fence is up
pasture ready
missed the new barn
bigger than a bread box
The barn is on the right…
I asked where the horses
were going to be kept nice and cozy warm
knowing there’d be a place.
I took the photo from beside the car …
the building faces the driveway
so it HAD to be there
on my arrival half hour before !
what you walk by but don’t see.

# 1548 TPOS prompt: thru the screen … Two Bald Eagles in Tree

across Mill Pond
eagles so close ~ so far away
aloof mating flights
she stands firm ~ looks askance
he joins her on same limb

# 1547 TPOS: thru the screen … Eagle sighting

outside window
soft female eyes ~ killer beak
dreamlike vision
touched by an eagles soul
TPOS: thru the screen

a “second chance” photo… she had
perched on a limb outside the library window..
I was so stunned to see her so close, and lost
the moment to take the photo… I thought the
image in my mind was a mirage since I could not
find another photo of such a sweet face on an
eagle. She flew to the other side of the pond
and took this photo.

# 1546 TPOS exercise, vitality movement #2

“Jack” is Jack LaLanne
and I realized when I started with
the sitting yoga and the simple yoga
exercises, that many of the exercises
were ones I saw my Mother do along
with Jack on his tv show…
including the mouth exercises !
rowing machine Fav.
yoga for contortionist
til old and gray
realized “Jack” knew best
call it something else

# 1545 TPOS: memorable quotes

The age of 35 seems to be the
number most people over 60 ish
seem to feel mentally. I started asking
the “how old do you feel” after a
resident, Elsa, on her birthday told
me that because of her health
issues, she would say she felt 35
mentally and older than her 80 birthdays.
my mind is only 35
the body says otherwise
say the elderly
first you stoop ~ then you droop
getting old is chicken poop
TPOS: memorable quotes

# 1544 TPOS: vitality movement, exercise

My father managed a Woolworth store
and was a worker bee.. out on the floor
most of the day walking making sure the
store ran smoothly, creating displays and
greeting customers.
Back in the day (1954) there were knobs to turn,
rabbit ears to adjust … remember the
aluminum foil to get better reception.
and we had a good sized living room
(and of course only 3 channels
on the tv in Milwaukee)
on his feet all day
rolled his eyes at jogging
exercise right here
pointer finger back and forth
walks ‘cross room to change channels
