Have you ever done something an’ felt really good about it? Then later, you see somethin’ that reminds you of that proud moment? I did that. A long, long time ago, I was traveling either to or from North Dakota with my good hubby-buddy in the middle of winter. As we drove, we were struck with how beautiful the snow was over everything. At one point, I recall seeing fields an’ fields of hay in huge round bales, each one covered with a sprinkling of snow. Without one instant of hesitation, I hadda’ grab my notebook an’ start scribbling ’cause a poem had leaped into my head an’ demanded to be written whilst it was fresh in my thoughts.
Yesterday, while visiting a new neighbor on the web whom I had previously never met, I was surprised to see a picture that perfectly matched what I wanted to portray in that poem. Believe me, I was quick about emailing the owner of that blog an’ askin’ if I could use her photo. Imagine my excitement when she wrote back (about two minutes ago) an’ said I could. Below is that beautiful photo, followed by the poem I enjoyed writing, such a long time ago. If you’d like to see some more amazing photos, be sure to go to Once Upon A Rose Haven’s blog. You won’t wanna’ leave. I a’ready know you’re gonna’ love the picture an’ I hope you enjoy the poem as much as I enjoyed writing it.
